Join the International Migration Research Centre (IMRC) for a lecture and conversation with Ben Rowswell. Dr. Alison Mountz, Director of the IMRC and Canada Research Chair in Global Migration, will moderate the conversation.
Ben Rowswell, the CIC President and Research Director, will draw on his observations of populism in Venezuela, the United Kingdom and the United States to argue that it represents a rival form of politics to democracy. He will demonstrate how misleading and hostile perceptions of the international system are a mainstay of populist politics, and will issue a call to all Canadians to engage in informed and respectful debate about international relations as a means to uphold our democratic traditions.
CIC Waterloo Region would like to thank the Dr. Robert Gordon, Vice-President Academic and Provost at Wilfrid Laurier University, Dr. Alison Mountz of the International Migration Research Center at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, Laurier International, the national office of the CIC, and the executive members of the Waterloo branch for making this event possible.
Registration is available now.
