March 3, 2017

Dr Ameer Ali will discuss Trumpist Populism and Islamist radicalism in a free public lecture.

In a free public lecture, Dr Ameer Ali from Murdoch’s School of Business and Governance will take a critical review of President Trump’s populist policies and analyse the economic impact of these policies on western nations like Australia.

Dr Ali will present on 'Trumpist populism and Islamist radicalism' at 6pm, Monday 6 March in the Hill Lecture Theatre at Murdoch University.

“The controversially elected American president Donald Trump’s political campaign and election manifesto were replete with populist slogans, ‘Wipe out ISIS’, ‘Eradicate Islamic Terrorism’, ‘Ban Muslim Entry to America’, ‘Build a Wall to secure American Borders’ among the most prominent,” said Dr Ali.

“Accordingly, President Trump has asked the security advisers to prepare a plan within 30 days to defeat ISIS, has issued an executive order to ban Muslims entering the US from a selected list of Muslim majority countries, and has imposed economic sanctions on Iran with possible military action in the future.

“To the radicals Trump is Manna from Heaven.”

Dr Ali’s lecture will take a critical review of Trump’s populist policies and his belligerency from the point of radical Islamism.

The lecture will also include an analysis of the economic impact of these policies on Western nations such as Australia.
