Zaprasza profesor Martin Krygier:

Ivan Krastev and Stephen Holmes will be with us to discuss their book about ‘why the West is losing the fight for democracy’, with the three leaders of the Constitutional Populism project, Adam Czarnota and Martin Krygier of the University of New South Wales Law School, and Wojciech Sadurski, of the Sydney University Law School.

In their book The Light That Failed: A Reckoning (Allen Lane, 2019), Krastev and Holmes argue that the supposed end of history turned out to be only the beginning of an “Age of Imitation.” Reckoning with the history of the last thirty years, they show that the most powerful force behind the wave of populist xenophobia that began in Eastern Europe, and has spread to the heartland of the West, stems from alienation and resentment at the post-1989 imperative to become Westernized. The book won the 30th Annual Lionel Gelber Prize, a literary award for the world’s best non-fiction book in English on foreign affairs that seeks to deepen public debate on significant international issues. The reach of the book is global, and it deals with several of the central geopolitical challenges of our time.
