Conference: Current Populism in Europe and the Role of the Media

IIS FSV UK, Heinrich Böll Stiftung and Goethe Institut are organizing the 3rd Prague Populism Conference on 22nd and 23rd May 2017. The event will take place at Goethe Institut in Prague. 

The conference will deal with theoretical aspects of populism; presentation of empirical studies on issues such as media strategies of populist politicians; movements or parties; the way the media covers populism; the interlinkages between the media and political leaders; and the implications of media coverage on the political space. There will be a special part dedicated to comparative analyses of individual EU states with regard to the situation in the USA. The two-day event will be framed by keynote speeches by Nadia Urbinati from Columbia University, Hanspeter Kriesi from the European University Institute in Florence and by Wolfgang Merkel from the WZB Berlin.

The conference takes place under the auspices of H.M. Tomáš Zima, the Rector of Charles University.

Swear on our own!

For more than a quarter century, after the establishing of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Charles University, graduate students could not swear on the faculty´s own mace and the insignia had to be borrowed by the Faculty of Arts. Let’s make the dream of our own insignia a reality!

Every year thousands of students of FSV UK take both graduation and matriculation oaths. Do they know whose mace they swear on? Although we had been swearing and vowing on borrowed mace before, there is no need for our successors to continue after 25 years of existence of the faculty. And so this is how it all started...For the project announcement collection, we gained support from current as well as former deans of FSV UK - incumbent Dean Jakub Koncelik and former Deans Prof. Lubomir Mlcoch and Prof. Jan Amos Visek. We approched Mr. Otmar Oliva - the academic sculptor who was alredy contacted by the former Dean, Prof. Miloslav Petrusek, twenty years ago.

This funding is one of the last steps to fulfill a twenty year old dream!

Welcome to the Faculty of Social Sciences web
