POPREBEL project: ‘ The refugee crisis and the populist and radical right in the Baltic States’

Vasileios Petsinis will outline the commonalities, as well as the divergent trajectories, in the emergence of right-wing populist trends in Estonia and Latvia. Particular attention will be paid to the intersections among right-wing populism, Euroscepticism, and ‘old’ (i.e. the question of the Russophone minorities) as well as ‘new’ (i.e. the refugee crisis and LGBT issues) identity-politics in the two societies.
