hosted by Deutsche Welle

Watch video 69:32

Brexit, Trump, Modi. Nationalism and anti-globalization in the form of populism has been emerging across the globe. The public has demonstrated a widespread distrust in the political establishment’s management of globalization by turning away from it. Issues such as xenophobia and wealth inequality are perceived as threats. But the underlying drive behind populism is in fact globalization and the search for simple answers — yes or no — to address complex global issues. Globalization does not come in any given form and the answer to globalization is that there is no simple answer. How can media help dismantle the foundation of populism and make the phenomenon understandable for all?
