Renowned American Professor Cas Mudde will be at Carleton University on Thursday, Nov. 3 to speak about the European radical right and the broader implications of this summer’s attacks in Norway.
Mudde will look at the attacker’s manifesto, in which the terrorist referred to a broad range of people and parties, mostly of the European radical right. His talk will explore the power of the European radical right and how dangerous they are for European democracies.
Mudde is the Hampton and Esther Boswell Distinguished University Professor of Political Science at DePauw University. He received his PhD at Leiden University in the Netherlands and has taught at universities throughout Europe and the United States. His most recent book, Populist Radical Right Parties in Europe, was a Choice Outstanding Academic Title and also won the Stein Rokkan Prize.
