36. Sommerakademie - Emotionen im Konflikt

Dass Emotionen in der Politik und in sozialen und politischen Konflikten eine zentrale Rolle spielen, ist bekannt, wird aber trotzdem zu wenig berücksichtigt. Ist ein gewisses Ausmaß an persönlich empfundener Empörung notwendiger Bestandteil jedweden politischen Engagements und jedweder politischen Veränderung? Wann schlägt produktive Empörung in destruktive Gewalt um? Welche Ängste treiben den „Wutbürger“ wirklich um? Wann wird Empörung zum Selbstzweck? Was macht den neuen Autoritarismus und Nationalismus für viele Menschen so attraktiv? Warum wählen Menschen Regierungen, die die Ohnmachtserfahrungen dieser selben Menschen noch potenzieren? Warum kann so viel Hass so schnell als Mittel der Politik mobilisiert werden? Warum scheint die Festgefahrenheit so vieler gewaltförmiger und kriegerischer Konflikte weniger mit der Abwesenheit von Transformationspotentialen und Lösungsvorschlägen, sondern vielmehr mit starrsinnig verteidigten Gefühlsqualitäten und damit unterfütterten Vorurteilsstrukturen zu tun zu haben?

Rücktritt vom Fortschritt: Warum der Rechtspopulismus den Feminismus bekämpft

  • International Institute for Peace (map)

Die Feminismus-Debatte ist im 21. Jahrhundert glücklicherweise keine Neuheit mehr. Dennoch stößt sie nach wie vor auf viel Widerstand. Dieser tritt seit einigen Jahren verstärkt im Gewand des Rechtspopulismus und seinen Anhängern auf. Auf den ersten Blick fragt sich, wie Rechtspopulismus und Anti-Feminismus verknüpft sind - und dazu lässt sich ein komplexes Angebot an Erklärungen und Analysen finden.

Two faces of European right-wing populist trends: Denmark and Hungary

  • International Institute for Peace (map)

Populist parties in Hungary and Denmark differ substantially. Six months before the European elections, the question arises: do these parties have anything in common? Should liberal Europe be concerned about both trends? Is Orban the only threat? Can these parties potentially become allies in Strasbourg? Are immigration and Islam the only issues that unite them?
