About Cas Mudde

Cas Mudde is Stanley Wade Shelton UGAF Professor in the School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Georgia in the United States and Professor II at the Center for Research on Extremism (C-REX) at the University of Oslo in Norway. His broader research agenda addresses the question: how can liberal democracies defend themselves against political challenges without undermining their core values? Most of his work has focused on political challenges from the far right in Europe, but more recent work also looks at settlers in Israel, animal rights and environmentalist activists in western democracies and left and right populists across the globe.
