Andras Sajo, Renata Uitz and Stephen Holmes: Routledge Handbook of Illiberalism

We are happy to announce that the Routledge Handbook of Illiberalism, edited by our Senior Research Fellow Andras Sajo, Research Affiliate Renata Uitz and Stephen Holmes (New York University) has been published.

The volume is the first authoritative reference work dedicated to illiberalism as a complex social, political, cultural, legal, and mental phenomenon.

Although illiberalism is most often discussed in political and constitutional terms, its study cannot be limited to such narrow frames. This Handbook comprises sixty individual chapters authored by an internationally recognized group of experts who present perspectives and viewpoints from a wide range of academic disciplines. Chapters are devoted to different facets of illiberalism, including the history of the idea and its competitors, its implications for the economy, society, government and the international order, and its contemporary iterations in representative countries and regions.

The chapter Gender and Illiberalism has been written by our Research Affiliate Andrea Peto, while our Senior Research Fellow Martin Krygier authored the chapter Illiberalism and the Rule of Law.

The Routledge Handbook of Illiberalism will form an important component of any library's holding; it will be of benefit as an academic reference, as well as being an indispensable resource for practitioners, among them journalists, policy makers and analysts, who wish to gain an informed understanding of this complex phenomenon.
