Throughout the world, we have witnessed the emergence of neo-populist options of a totalitarian and xenophobic nature including Geert Wilders in Holland and Marine Le Pen in France. Drawing on reactionary nationalism, Islamophobia, an hostility to immigration—presenting themselves as “anti-establishment” alternatives to mainstream parties capable of restoring jobs to “deserving” citizens and restoring national prestige—these parties have been able to make strong inroads. But the left is also attempting to organize and push back. This panel will discuss how these politics have emerged and what it will take to build the social solidarity and left alternatives capable of challenging it.
