 The rise of radical conservative political movements is one of the most striking developments in global politics. From Asia to Africa, from the Eastern European ‘new democracies’ to the Nordic social democracies, not to mention Russia, the UK and the United States, variations of autocratic and illiberal discourse have built electoral support and succeeded in transforming the political landscape and the structure of public debate. While these political movements are frequently regarded as simply nationalist and populist, this panel focuses on the globality and international networks of contemporary radical conservatism and argues that the rise of the global right represents a potentially momentous disruption of the liberal international order.

 Join us for this panel presenting the CIPS-based research project Global Right funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).
