Populism and The Right A new brand of politics is gripping Europe. Populist politicians and anti-migrant parties are winning at the ballot box, reshaping their countries and changing the direction of the EU. Political Tours launches two new tours in 2019 to look at their impact.
Orbán’s Hungary 15-20 March, 2019 Our five-day tour takes us south to the recently constructed fence with Serbia designed to keep out the immigrants that once crossed Hungary’s borders. We meet supporters in the towns and countryside swept up by Orbán’s brand of nationalism. In Budapest leading politicians and analysts examine how Fidesz has secured its grip on power and is now seeking to reshape Europe in its own image. The tour is led by the BBC's Hungary correspondent and author, Nick Thorpe.
Italy & The New Right 5-11 May, 2019
In Italy we explore the rise of the Five Star movement and the League that came to government in June 2018. The rising star of the coalition, Matteo Salvini, has made his mark by turning back migrants in Italian waters and calling for an end to the Euro. What are the implications for the rest of Europe? The tour covers Milan, Bologna and Rome and is led by the author and journalist Tobias Jones.
