The Reemergence of Fascism in Western Democracies

Madeleine Albright in conversation with Emily Maitlis

78 mins watch time

Posted November 2018


After World War II, Fascism fell out of favour: it became an insult to be traded. But the momentum for democracy that swept the world when the Berlin Wall fell has gone into reverse. In many countries, economic, technological, and cultural factors are weakening the political centre and empowering the extremes of right and left. Madeleine Albright argues, that Fascism not only endured through the course of the twentieth century, but presents a more virulent threat to international peace and justice now than at any time since 1945.
