Donald Trump and Matteo Salvini, leader of Italy’s League, August 2016

How do we understand populist leadership in the US? Is Donald Trump a “populist”? What are the similarities and differences between Trump’s rhetoric and ideology and that of populists in today’s Europe, including the UK and Ireland?

The Populism in Action Project and University College Dublin’s Clinton Institute host a panel discussing those questions:

*Mick Fealty, founding editor of the site Slugger O’Toole
*Dr. Danielle Albertazzi, University of Birmingham and Principal Investigator of PiAP
*Professor Daphne Halikiopoulou, University of Reading
*Professor Tim Bale, Queen Mary University London
*Professor Scott Lucas, University of Birmingham and EA WorldView
