The panel discussion The Rise of Right-Wing Politics at the Bradford Literature Festival explored how right-wing populism has become a global phenomenon.

ISD’s Jacob Davey  joined in conversation Claire Fox, founder of the Institute of Ideas; Sebastian Payne, Whitehall editor for the Financial Times; and Matthew Feldman, presenter of Payne’s Politics podcast. They discussed a range of topics, including social media and government policy, in relation to the rise in right of centre and far-right politics.
