Our esteemed faculty member Matt Dallek participated in a thought-provoking panel discussion with GW faculty members Elisabeth Anker and Harris Mylonas about the ideas and themes explored in their recent publications. Drawing on various disciplines, including theory, political science, and history, these scholars delve into the often-overlooked forces that have threatened liberal democracy and bolstered authoritarian regimes worldwide. GSPM alumna Heather Aliano, MPS ’19 moderated the event.
Liesl Riddle, the dean of the College of Professional Studies and an associate professor of International Business and International Affairs, said the event "Ugly Freedoms, Enemies Within, and Birchers" was the theme of a thought-provoking panel discussion among three faculty from The George Washington University, all of whom have published new books this year.
This event was a collaboration between The Graduate School of Political Management in The George Washington University College of Professional Studies, the Colombian College of Arts & Sciences, and the Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies in the Elliott School of International Affairs, said Riddle.
