Can liberal democracy be saved by a reconstructed Left in Europe? Across the continent leftist parties are facing political irrelevance as rising populist parties are giving voice to disenfranchised voters who believe that neo-liberal financial policies rescued bankers at the cost of the people’s welfare. As architects of these policies, leftist parties appear rudderless in the crossfire of this debate. At these panels, scholars and policy makers will analyze the challenges of today’s leftist parties and examine if a transformation could strengthen them against threats to democratic principles.
9:00am - 2:00pm
