Political Tribalism in the 21st Century


Amy Chua

Professor of Law at Yale University & author of Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations

This event is part of the series "The Backlash against Liberal Democracy," which brings together influential voices from Europe and the United States to shed light on different aspects of the challenges that liberal democracies face. Together with our guest Amy Chua, we will discuss how renationalization dominates the political atmosphere in the United States and how the role of identity and political polarization affect U.S. foreign policy.

Amy Chua is the John M. Duff, Jr. Professor of Law at Yale Law School and is a noted expert in the areas of foreign policy, globalization, and ethnic conflict. She is bestselling author of numerous books, among others, The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America (2013) and her runaway bestseller 2011 memoir Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. The New York Times writes: “Chua approaches the no-go areas around which others usually tiptoe.” In such fashion, she unabatedly addresses the rise of identity politics in the United States in her latest book Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations.
