Democratic Backsliding in Europe?

The BMW Center for German and European Studies

invites you to:

Democratic Backsliding in Europe?

a lecture by:

Dr. Ireneusz Pawel Karolewski
Professor and Chair of Politics
Willy Brandt Center for German and European Studies
University of Wroclaw

The political trends in Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia poses urgent questions that about the future of democracy. Do these countries find themselves on a slippery slope towards “illiberal democracy” and why? Is there a specific “regional” explanation for the democratic deficit in Central and Eastern Europe? What particular interests aim at “state capture”?

Professor Karolewski holds a chair in political science at the Willy Brandt Center at Wroclaw University, Poland. His areas of emphasis are European integration, political theory, and nationalism. His current research revolves around populism, citizenship and migration, and democratic backsliding.
