Upcoming Event - Sept 14-2018: The Silent Revolution in Reverse: The Rise of Trump and the Authoritarian Populist Parties
Please join us for an engaging evening presentation and discussion with internationally-renowned political scientist Ronald Inglehart, who will speak to the emergence of populism and authoritarian governments, arguably one of our time's most pressing social and political trends.
Professor Inglehart's recently published book, Cultural Evolution: People’s Motivations are Changing, and Reshaping the World, argues that people’s values and behavior are shaped by the degree to which survival is secure; it was precarious for most of history, which encouraged heavy emphasis on group solidarity, rejection of outsiders, and obedience to strong leaders. Evidence from more than 100 countries demonstrates that people’s motivations and behavior reflect the extent to which they take survival for granted—and that modernization changes them in roughly predictable ways. This book explains the rise of environmentalist parties, gender equality, and same-sex marriage… and the current reaction producing Trump, Brexit, and France's National Front, through a new, empirically-tested version of modernization theory.
WHEN: September 14, 2018 at 6 – 8:00 PM
WHERE: Isabel Bader Theatre, 93 Charles Street West, Toronto
