Lecture at National Chengchi University in Taipei on April 10th

Alex will deliver a lecture about the return of religious and nationalistic narratives to the global stage. In many countries ruling governments and new right-wing, populist groups alike emphasise a religious and/or ethnic component of their identity. By doing so they deliberately take the alienation of the minorities in their countries in account. For global affairs this assertion of one own's superiority leads in consequence to the end of a prosperous, peaceful era of collaboration that the world has seen since the end of WWII.
