In the wake of the fall of the Berlin wall, a wave of hope spread that the world would finally head towards lasting peace, cooperation and the development of universal values. Some even alluded to the possibility of the “end of history”. Around three decades later, the results are lukewarm. Even in the most advanced democracies, populism, nationalism and protectionist claims are on the rise, while the temptation of dangerous nationalist fallback is looming closer. Moreover Internet, once full of promises for the access to knowledge and democratization, is increasingly endangered by the threat of disinformation and conspiracy theories.
After a short opening speech by David Cvach, French ambassador to Sweden, Natalie Nougayrède and Peter Wolodarski will discuss a topic that still seems to haunt Western democracies: the weight of their past, and their ghosts returning.
Not only will they be debating issues related to populism (What are the roots of the phenomenon? What is at stake for the European Union? What prospects are to be expected?), they will also explore the challenges to be addressed by modern journalism in this regard: What is the role of social media nowadays? Have they taken over when it comes to informing the masses? What place and role is left to traditional media, often considered as part of the elite?
