Gisela Stuart is in conversation with Professor Frank Furedi on sovereignty, populism and European culture. The discussion will explore the principles of national and popular sovereignty and how they can be positively applied to the post-Brexit era. In Furedi's new book Populism and the European Culture Wars: The Conflict of Values Between Hungary and the EU, he argues that the EU Establishment has succeeded in distorting both the true meaning of populism and of the principle of national sovereignty. He argues that there are fundamental principles at stake in what he has called the "European Culture Wars". Frank Furedi and Gisela Stuart will discuss what is at stake in this cultural conflict and how these principles can be positively applied to the post-Brexit era. Afterwards Frank and Gisela will respond to points and questions from the floor.
