Reluctant radicals event: Feb 26th Helsinki

21 February 2013

On 26 February, in Helsinki, Counterpoint launches the third pamphlet in its series of narrative pieces on the country-specific conditions that explain the emergence of populism. Johanna Korhonen describes how Finland – a country that to outsiders has been known for its embracing of technological modernisation and its pro-Europeanism – became susceptible to a spectacular populist upheaval in 2011. In that year the True Finns won over nearly one fifth of the vote and went on to become the main opposition party to the current government.

If you'd like to attend, RSVP to [email protected] by 22 Feb. More details about the event can be found on the Counterpoint website.

Is the pandemic changing attitudes towards migration?

Will Canada give its undocumented essential workers their rights? And where are the immigrants in the country’s policy debates?
