List of speakers

On September 13, at 11:00, the Valdai Discussion Club will hold a presentation of a new report, titled "Global 'Rightist Revolt': Trumpism and Its Foundations."

The personality of the US president and his actions are of great interest not only in Russia, but throughout the world. This is due to the transformation of the American society, which made his victory possible. In this regard it is extremely important to study the basic foundations of trumpism as a socio-ideological phenomenon.

The report “Global Rightist Revolt: Trumpism and Its Foundations" is dedicated to the emergence of this phenomenon as a new ideology, which is a internal Western challenge to the neo-liberal mainstream. The report gives an analysis of the social base of Trumpism and its main values. The economic agenda of the new phenomenon is considered separately.

The report pays special attention to the problem of the social stability of trumpism: was it only a one-time outbreak or is it a long-term phenomenon that can change the social base of US policy in the next election cycles?

The authors of the report also consider the possibilities and limits of the"rightist revolt" transfer to Europe, how trumpism differs from the rightist national movements in the EU countries, whether a creation of a Trumpist Internationale of non-systemic rightist forces is possible, and, finally, how ideological postulates and values ​​of the rightist revolt can be applicable in Russia.
