How Identity Politics Has Shaped Modern Political Discourse

September 10, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Identity politics has long been thought to help members of disenfranchised communities create a voice for themselves. However, in recent years, identity politics has led to increased polarization between the left and the right, creating a rise of populism in the United States and Europe. Now in 2020, the call for social justice and racial equality have brought identity into the forefront of political debates on both sides of the Atlantic.

As part of the virtual 2020 German-American Conference, the  American Council on Germany and Atlantik-Brücke invite you to join a virtual discussion with political scientist and Young Leader alumnus Dr. Francis Fukuyama (1985 Young Leader), Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI), Mosbacher Director of FSI’s Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law (CDDRL), and Director of Stanford’s Master’s in International Policy Program, on September 10 at 11:00 am. In a conversation moderated by German journalist Christiane Hoffmann (1997 Young Leader), Dr. Fukuyama will discuss how identity politics have shaped modern political discourse. He will also share his thoughts on the political implications of the simultaneous public health, economic, and social equity challenges we are facing.
