The Brookings Cafeteria

Feb 26, 2019

This episode is the first of a four-part podcast series from the Democracy and Disorder Project at the Brookings Institution, and is hosted by Torrey Taussig—a nonresident fellow with the Center on the United States and Europe at Brookings and a Robert Bosch Foundation Fellow based in Berlin.

In the interview, Taussig speaks with experts Célia Belin and Constanze Stelzenmüller about a range of challenges to democracy in Europe, including the rise of populism on the left and right, plus new challenges to democratic institutions including migration and the rise of illiberal governments within the EU and NATO. The discussion also highlights renewed skepticism about European institutions coming from some populist parties leading into the upcoming elections for the European Parliament.
