Abstract: Some political commentators analyze the existing similarities between US presidential candidates and European leaders and grassroots movements. On the one hand, Donald Trump has been seen as the American Silvio Berlusconi and, on the other side of the political spectrum, Bernie Sanders has been compared with left-winger Jeremy Corbyn from the Labor Party in UK, or with Pablo Iglesias from Podemos in Spain. Professors Martinez Sierra and Gourevitch will share their views about similarities and differences in theses leaderships and their agendas.

Please notice that this event is not open to the public, RSVP is required.
