Each Tuesday, the Conflict, Security, and Development Series will examine new research, discuss creative policy approaches and highlight recent innovations in responding to the challenges of security and development in conflict and post-conflict situations.
Please join us for a talk with Fall 2017 Visiting IR Scholar Evren Balta on "Explaining the Micro Dynamics of the Populist Cleavage in 'New Turkey'"
Over the last decade, the literature on populism has flourished as it has sought to account for the causes, definitions and consequences of the significant support and prolonged political success of populist leaders and parties. However, the political and emotional reception of populist performance by populist constituencies is still an under-researched subject. Based on a qualitative study that is conducted in Istanbul between October and December 2016, this talk will focus on how performative populist political style is received, reproduced and reflected in the emotional and political frameworks of the populist constituencies.
The Program in International Relations is a co-sponsor of the Conflict, Security & Development series at the NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service along with the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU Law, the Center for Global Affairs at NYU's School for Professional Studies, NYU's College of Global Public Health, and NYU Wagner's Office of International Programs.
