TLRH | The Rise of Authoritarianism in the Global South

Thursday, 3 February 2022, 7 – 8pm

TLRH | The Rise of Authoritarianism in the Global South

In recent years, there has been a disturbing trend toward authoritarianism in the Global South.  For this event, three panellists will describe the factors that led to its rise in Brazil, India, and the Philippines and assess the forces of resistance in each country.  They will argue that far from being a coincidence, authoritarianism's rise in different locales has emerged out of a global crisis of neoliberalism.  A panel discussion organised by Trinity's Centre for Resistance Studies and supported by the Trinity Long Room Hub.
