Video: The Rise of Far-Right Counter-Revolution around the World. Interview with Walden Bello

Regressive political movements have increased in size and power over the last decade, with dissatisfaction with the status quo and political conflict on the rise. In this episode of the “Great Unraveling?” series, Walden Bello joins me to explore the factors behind the rise in political fragmentation in both the global south and global north, and the success of nativist and other political movements.

Walden Bello is currently a professor of sociology at the State University of New York at Binghamton and a former member of the House of Representatives of the Philippines, and a recipient of the Right Livelihood Award in 2003. His latest book is Counterrevolution, the Global Rose of the Far Right.
