Is populism a bad thing? Is populism a bad thing? – Tortoise

Tortoise ThinkIn – Is populism a bad thing?

Wednesday 31 July 2019

Duration: 6:30PM – 7:30PM

16-19 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DY

Status: Completed

Populism, of Left and Right, is sweeping the democratic world. But is it a bad thing to pit ‘the People’ against the ‘elites’? And is social media driving the change or responding to an existing appetite?

Our special guests include:

Catherine FieschiExecutive Director at Counterpoint. 

Dr Paul Stocker, from the Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right. 

Dr Eitan Tzelgov, Lecturer in Politics at The University of East Anglia.

Chair: Matthew d’Ancona, Editor and Partner at Tortoise. 

What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.

Drinks from 6.00pm, starts promptly at 6.30pm. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can ‘SlinkIn’!

If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing thinkin@tortoisemedia.com

We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person.

Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
