Across the world, populist and nativist arguments have shifted electoral politics, realigned political parties, and redefined policy debates. From politicians and policymaking to elections and the media, debates about immigration, populism, ethnicity, and nativism are redefining politics. Building off of the success of a 2018 symposium, Ipsos Public Affairs and the EU Center at Texas A&M University are bringing together researchers who study these important political issues from a broad range of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches to share and discuss their research.
This virtual event took place on June 21, 2021 starting at 8am through Texas A&M University.
Presented research will be prepared for submission to a special issue of Social Science Quarterly.
