Austrian Politics | SIB masterclass | Crea Theater
maandag 15 april 20:00Gratis
During the second half of 2018, Austria took over the chair of the Council of the European Union and has reached the spotlights with the way it dealt with pressing issues at the European level. Although being in a widely-criticized coalition with the far-right FPÖ, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz’ chairmanship has not been interrupted by major controversies. Simultaneously, Kurz succeeded in rebranding the traditionally old-fashioned ruling party and attracted more younger voters.
During this masterclass, we aim to learn and understand the political transformation that Austria has undergone in the past years under Kurz. What direction is Austria heading? What does the electorate think about this? What are the implications of a coalition with a far-right member? What about the opposition? And how did Austria fulfil its role in the European Union? These, more and of course your own questions will be answered during the masterclass.
