All That is Solid Melts into Air: The Politics of Hope in a Time of Fragility

Synopsis
Right wing populism stalks Europe and has a representative in the White House. Our politics are destabilised by uncertainty while our economies are undermined by uncertainty. In this podcast, journalist Gary Younge argues, that the right is not ideologically in the ascendant and there are opportunities in this chaos for progressives. Part of the Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust Annual Lecture organised in collaboration with Birkbeck Institute for Humanities. [35 minutes, excluding Q&A]
