31 March 2016, 12:00-14:00

Venue: Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, Avenue de Cortenbergh 71, 1000 Brussels

About the event:
Donald Trump is likely to win the Republican presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders promises free healthcare and college education for all to snag the nomination from presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton. In Europe, the populist Fidesz party has been hard at work to dismantle Hungary’s system of checks and balances, while fellow populists in Poland, France, Germany and the Netherlands are riding a high of popular disappointment with the way Europe has failed to handle the refugee crisis.

What does this development mean for the transatlantic relationship? What about Europe’s and America’s position in the world? What can be done to stop the trend?

Join us for an exclusive discussion on populism with the American author, philosopher and speaker extraordinaire Tom Palmer.
