The Standing Group is thrilled to announce its new seminar series on Southern European Politics starting on Friday 12 May, 16:00 – 17:30 (CEST) with Catherine De Vries (Bocconi University) presenting her research on Revisiting the origins of far-right support through the prism of people’s interactions with the state.
Far-right parties and candidates have gained significant vote shares and representation in many countries in recent years. The literature explaining far-right support centers on two sets of factors: (1) material concerns stemming from exposure to globalization, trade shocks or changing labor markets, and; (2) cultural concerns relating to migration shocks or demographic patterns – or the interaction between the two. Much less attention has been paid to people’s experiences with the state. In this talk, Catherine De Vries will revisit the debate about the origins of far-right support through the prism of people’s experiences with the state by exploiting the political consequences of public service provision in Italy.
