In the last decades big integration processes shaped the world politically, culturally and economically. Aside from that, nationalist populism gained support in many industrialized countries and many scholars of political science see causality between globalization and the rise of nationalist movements. As populism was always and always will be part of a democratic political system, we want to academically examine the polarized discussions in Turkey, Germany and the world.

Therefore, we want to work on this matter together on our academic day “Love-Hate Relationship? Globalization and Nationalist Populism” on 13th of April. We plan to examine globalization via the perspectives of “Economic Globalization”, “National Sovereignty vs. Regional Integration” and “Migration”.
