“Challenging the Liberal World Order: Dangers and Possibilities” Speaker Series Event 

Why have leftists in Europe and the United States been unable to take advantage of the political turmoil in their nations?  Socialists and social democrats ought to benefit from the mass outrage against inequality. Yet, nearly everywhere, they are embroiled in a crisis of their own about what they stand for and how to move forward. What path should they take?
