Regressive political movements have increased in size and power over the last decade, within a backdrop of dissatisfaction with the status quo and increasing political polarization. In this episode of the “Great Unraveling?” series, Walden Bello joins Laurie Laybourn-Langton 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, 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 entitled Counterrevolution, the Global Rose of the Far Right.
