Assoc. Dr. Umut Uzer will be conducting research at the University of Georgia in the United States as part of the Erasmus Plus program on the topic of populism in the United States as well as globally.
Populism has emerged as a prominent political force both in the United States and around the world. In the United States, populist movements have gained traction by appealing to the frustrations and grievances of ordinary citizens who feel left behind by the political establishment. These movements often tap into economic anxieties, cultural identity, and a sense of disillusionment with traditional political parties. From Europe to Latin America, populist movements have capitalized on public discontent, challenging established political systems and advocating for policies that prioritize the interests of the common people. However, populism's rise has also sparked debates and concerns about its impact on democratic institutions, minority rights, and international cooperation. The phenomenon of populism continues to shape political landscapes worldwide, making it a subject of significant interest and research.
Assoc. Dr. Umut Uzer will be conducting research at the University of Georgia as part of the Erasmus Plus program between June 11th and June 18th. Commonly referred to as UGA, the University of Georgia is a renowned public research university located in Athens, Georgia, USA. Established in 1785, it is one of the oldest public universities in the country.
