- On Tyranny
- Populism and the Road to Unfreedom
- Aula der Alten Universität
With the end of the Cold War, the liberal democracies of the West had triumphed – and humanity expected a peaceful, globalized future. A mistake.
Since Putin established his power in Russia, a wave of authoritarianism has been rolling from East to West that has gripped Europe and reached the White House with Donald Trump.
Timothy Snyder, professor of history at Yale University, has presented twenty lessons for resisting populism in his world bestseller On Tyranny. In The Road to Unfreedom, he now outlines the rise of the new “right-wing International”, describes its threatening objectives, and shows how much the foundations of our democracy are at risk.
Ensuing discussion in English and German.
