Full title: The Dialectic of Globalization and Regional Integration: Attitudes, Parties and Policies This seminar discusses backlashes against processes of globalization and integration as reactions inherent to these processes. We will analyze the political consequences of economic and political integration as they pertain to the forces that are strengthened through integration. Examples include the rise of left and right-wing populist parties and candidates, the popularity of anti-globalization stances and movements, as well as the political consequences of these backlashes. We are interested both in regional integration arrangements (primarily the European Union) and processes of globalization proper, i.e. multilateral political and economic integration.
