In this lecture, Professor Lee Sook Jong examines South Korea’s protest movements through the perspective of populism. At the same time, her in-depth research contributes to the under-researched populist developments in Asia while comparing how such developments are different from their counterparts in the West.

The Illiberalism Studies Program studies the different faces of illiberal politics and thought in today’s world, taking into account the diversity of their cultural context, their intellectual genealogy, the sociology of their popular support, and their implications on the international scene.
