Shaharit’s Conference on the Economics of Populism

On Thursday and Friday, June 7th and 8th, Shaharit, in concert with the Van Leer Institute, held an international workshop entitled “Towards a Populist Class-Based Political Economy.” The seminar, featuring academics from the UK and Turkey, was attended by more than 40 senior academics, doctoral students, leaders of civil society, and economists from across Israel, and focused on examining the different alternatives to the current neo-liberal vs. social-democratic economic dichotomy through the lens of rising populism throughout the world (i.e. the election of Trump, Brexit, and the rise of the right wing in Europe).
