"Nationalism & Populism: The Future of Europe?"

Growing nationalist sentiments and the rise of populist parties in Europe have taken on decisive roles influencing events such as Brexit, the refugee crisis and the debate over a European Army. Ideas of Nationalism and Populism have roots in the history of humankind, reflected in political upheaval, inequalities within societies and media coverage.

It is important to discuss and regard these ideas as shaping factors of the 21st century and moreover the future to come, concerning not just academics and politicians but every individual.

This years conference theme "Nationalism and Populism: The Future of Europe?” can be understood as a question and simultaneously as a statement. This conference will focus on the possible challenges and scenarios Europe may be faced with regarding issues of Migration, Security and Defense and (social) media.
