From Birkeck’s “Talking Europe” vlogcast series.
Welcome to our new Birkbeck’s new podcast/vlog series. The aim of this series is twofold. First, it seeks to provide easily accessible expert commentary on key political, social, economic and other events and processes that are currently unfolding in Europe. Second, in doing so, it seeks to showcase the Europe-related research that Birkbeck-based academics are currently conducting. These academics are based in a broad range of academic departments including Politics (@bbkpolitics), History (@BirkbeckHCA), Psychosocial studies (@bbkpsychosocial), Law (@BirkbeckLaw), Economics, Geography (@bbkgeography), as well as Birkbeck’s Centre for the Study of Internationalism (@centreintlhist). This new episode features Dr Ben Gidley from Birkbeck’s Department of Psychosocial Studies who discusses what the last EU elections tell us about the state of the far right in Europe.
