Central Europe has produced some of the most potent challenges to the norms of liberal democracy in recent years. While western observers have focused a considerable amount of attention on the institutional shifts that stem from these challenges, there is less information available on the social movements that lie behind them. This panel features two accomplished scholars who are actively researching the motivations, goals, and ideologies that animate these movements.

Panelists:

Agnieszka Pasieka, Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology, University of Vienna, and visiting lecturer at Dartmouth University. 

Ondřej Slačálek, Department of Political Science, Charles University, Prague, and visiting Fulbright Scholar, History Department at Brown University.
