Būris: Can nationalism and globalization co-exist?

In the current European Parliament (EP) term, following the 2019 elections, a number of right-wing parties formed a new group, Identity and Democracy, in the process becoming the fifth-largest group out of a total of seven political groups in the EP. It brings together 73 members from various countries including France, Germany, Italy and Estonia.

Yet at the same time the general trend in politics and commerce is towards a more interconnected or globalized world, so can the ideas of nationalism and globalization co-exist or must they come into inevitable conflict?

In the latest 'Būris' (Cage) discussion, LTV's Brussels correspondent Ilze Nagla tackles these and related matters with Hungarian MEP Marton Gyongyosi of Hungary's nationalist Jobbik party and Latvian MEP and former Rīga mayor Nils Ušakovs of the Harmony party, which describes itself as social democratic.

The Brussels discussions in English are bolstered by local Latvian-language debates on related issues. You can see the list of topics that will be covered at the dedicated Būris web page on LSM. These include animal welfare, multiculturalism, euthanasia, and other controversial themes. 

The Būris project is co-financed by the European Union.
