Crisis of the Liberal Order: Leon Botstein & Walter Russell Mead

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Leon Botstein, President of Bard College, and Walter Russell Mead, Distinguished Fellow at Hudson Institute, the James Clarke Chace Professor of Foreign Affairs and Humanities at Bard College, and Editor-at-Large of The American Interest, will discuss trends in politics across the globe. What explains the resurgence of populism and the rise of political actors on the right? What are the effects on longstanding alliances, international institutions and accepted norms? Why are democratic systems creating non-democratic outcomes?

This event is part of the James Clarke Chace Memorial Speaker Series, which is supported by Foreign Affairs. It is co-sponsored and hosted by the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.
