Tuesday April 30th | What is Really in the New Right? Javier Milei’s Rise and the Prospects of Latin American Democracy

Hellerup Mithras House, 4pm-6pm

Javier Milei went from flamboyant television economic commentator to president of Argentina in merely three years. In 2023, he defeated both left-wing Peronism and a center-right coalition with 55% of the vote in the run-off election. In just four months, he has implemented the harshest austerity program in the country’s history, moved the country towards an alignment with other global right-wing governments, and sought to roll back decades of labour, gender and diversity advancements. However, his agenda is being met with growing resistance. In the talk, the future prospects for his government will be explored, along with its implications for the so-called new right.

Friday 10th May | PhD workshop: Contemporary Politics: Challenges of Theory-Praxis nexus

Mithras House G5, 12pm-2pm

This workshop addresses the processes of writing a PhD in politics conceived very broadly (including interdisciplinary work that broaches political issues). The process of planning, researching, drafting and writing a PhD generates multiple issues and questions about relating theory and praxis, and this workshop provides the opportunity for PhD students to discuss the obstacles and challenges of grappling with their nexus. Hosted by Professor Maria Esperanza Casullo, Universidad Nacional de Rio Negro, vising global fellow.
