Think Tanks and Expertise and the Crisis of Liberal Order in the Trump Era

5.30pm

Seminars

Public, Staff, Students

Speaker: Professor Donald Abelson (University of Western Ontario)

The leading scholar of the role and influence of American think tanks will address the state of think tanks and expertise in an era of ‘fake news’, anti-intellectualism, anti-elitism and right-wing populism.

Given Trump’s attacks on the Washington, DC, establishment, promises to ‘drain the swamp’, and little reliance on either advice or appointments from the think tank world, and open hostility from liberal and neoconservative think tanks, what is the future of expert knowledge in American politics?

This seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.
