Recent elections in the advanced western democracies have undermined the basic foundations of political systems that had previously beaten back all challenges-from both the left and the right. The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified the backlash, further destabilising an already fragile political order.

Eric Lonergan, Martin Sandbu and Lea Ypi discuss their recent research about the political and economic causes of this turbulence and consider ways out of the impasse.

Eric Lonergan (@ericlonners) is is a macro hedge fund manager, economist, and co-author of Angrynomics.

Martin Sandbu (@MESandbu) is European Economics Commentator for the Financial Times and author of The Economics of Belonging.

Lea Ypi (@lea_ypi) is Professor in Political Theory in the LSE Department of Government.

Jonathan Hopkin (@jrhopkin) is Professor of Comparative Politics in the LSE Department of Government and author of Anti-System Politics.

You can order the books, The Economics of Belonging by Martin Sandbu, Angrynomics by Eric Lonergan and Anti-System Politics by Jonathan Hopkin (UK delivery only) from our official LSE Events independent book shop, Pages of Hackney.

The Department of Government (@LSEGovernment) is a world-leading centre for study and research in politics and government.
