Fear not, Papa is here

Chris Houston, Imelda Deinla, Jon Altman, Virginia Marshall
The last decade has seen a resurgence in political strongmen as a simplistic and populist antidote to a world of increasing uncertainty, disruption and complexity. Fear is a common currency of authoritarian political power and is being wielded by a growing cadre of international leaders, including Putin, Duterte, Erdoğan and Trump. Beyond, authoritarianism, however, there is the less confronting but just as insidious political sibling of paternalism, which cloaks the denial of political, economic and social agency by disadvantaged peoples in the respectability of ‘meaning well’. This panel examines how fear is being exploited by both authoritarianism and paternalism.
