Analyzing Socio-Political Tensions

GMA 400L - Senior Seminar Research Lab

The United States and Europe have had increasing tensions in the past decade. Both areas have seen a resurgence in populist sentiment. The United States has seen two new extremist groups rise, the alt-right and Antifa. Modern segregation has also given way to racial tensions. Europe has seen tensions in the European Union between its liberal leadership and conservative members. The influx of refugees has also contributed to a rise in nationalist parties that seek power in their respective countries.
