The rise of the right
In this episode from our Ideas and Society program, we explore recent events in Western politics and question whether they establish a type of anti-establishment populism. We’ll look at the election of Donald Trump, the Brexit vote, the rise of right-wing regimes in Hungary and Poland, and in Australia the re-birth of the One Nation Party.
- Judith Brett, Emeritus Professor of Politics at La Trobe and author of several books on the history of the liberal-conservative tradition in Australia.
- Katharine Murphy, a senior journalist with The Guardian, known as a perceptive and respected observer of local political culture.
- Guy Rundle, reporter at large for online news site Crikey.
