Populist Responses to Globalization

The Trent University Student Association for International Development (SAID) invites you to participate in our 11th annual Community Movements Conference titled “Populist Responses to Globalization: At Home and Abroad.”  The conference will take place at Sadleir House in Peterborough, Ontario, on February 2 and 3, 2018

The 2-day event will consist of presentations and workshops presented by academics, social activists, and others interested in local and international ‘populist’ backlashes or responses to globalization, and its relation to development studies. 

This year’s conference aims to explore how the social and political consequences of neoliberal globalization have spurred, directly and indirectly, the generation or mobilization of various populist movements and ideologies in response. It will examine domestic and international political responses from civil societies and states.


Tickets, at only $15, are on sale starting January 25th outside Wenjac Theatre and in the Student Centre on campus. Ticket price also includes 4 meals prepared by local companies and organizations, including Food Not Bombs.
