The Rise of Ethnic Nationalism
Tuesday, February 5, 2019
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States
Nationalism has re-emerged as a powerful force triggered in recent years by economic insecurity and inequality as well as fears of social and demographic change.
In his talk, Visiting Professor Shlomo Ben-Ami, former Israeli Foreign Minister and Co-Founder of the Toledo International Center for Peace, will discuss:
1) global forces that have led to this resurgence of ethnic nationalism in Israel, Europe and around the globe. 2) implications of this growing phenomenon, and 3) how countries can avoid disaster by devising a new way to balance liberal democratic values and people’s craving for a sense of belonging.
