About this grant

This grant will enable the Centre for Liberal Strategies Foundation to organize a three-day international conference entitled "The Challenge of the New Populism" on May 10-11, 2006. The purpose of the conference is to bring together leading academics, politicians and civic activists to discuss the various issues and challenges arising from the new populism and to formulate a range of responses. More than 120 participants are expected, including more than 30 specially invited guests and speakers from Europe, Central/Eastern Europe, the U.S. and Chile. The center, established in 1994 in Bulgaria, is an independent think tank whose mission is to carry out activities that promote public debate.
