Discussing the success of far right political parties

Yves Tiberghien, a UBC political science professor, spoke to CBC’s On the Coast about the recent successes of far right political parties.

Tiberghien noted the implications that may come with a Donald Trump presidency.

“The U.S. is different from all the others because it’s the centre of the global system,” he said. “For the first time in the postwar period, the U.S. just elected someone who has threatened to unravel many trade arrangements and trade treaties.”
