North American Colloquium Speaker Series


Nationalism and extremism pose mounting challenges around the world, including in North America. This web-based panel discussion will be the second in a tri-national series organized as part of the 2021-22 North American Colloquium by the Autonomous National University of Mexico, University of Toronto, and University of Michigan.

The first session examined the historical drivers of nationalist extremism in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. This second session will discuss the current landscape of threats posed by extreme forms of nationalism in each of the three countries. How and why are these ideas spreading? What are the key groups propagating extreme nationalist ideology, and what near-term security challenges do they present?
