Our editorial partners Counterpoint  are delighted to organise an event with Tristram Hunt MP on populism and extremism in Greece, the Netherlands and the UK. The event will take place on January 21st from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the Grimond Room of Portcullis House, Westminster, London. openDemocracy readers are welcome but places are limited. See event and booking details.

The panel is chaired by Tristram Hunt MP and also includes Aristos Doxiadis, Manos Matsaganis, Yvonne Zonderop, Sunder Katwala, and Catherine Fieschi. See the Reluctant Radicals' partnership page for further examination of the kind of risks that generate support for xenophobic populist parties, as well as the kind of risk these parties pose in political and policy terms.

Trade deals, Brexit and disaster capitalism

If you're tired of Brexit, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Is the UK joining Trumpland? Does this explain Boris Johnson's kamikaze EU negotiating strategy? And could beating this deal begin a challenge to the iniquities of the global economy?

Join us for a free live discussion at 5pm UK time, 24 September
