Article in openDemocracy co-authored by Jun Borras on rising authoritarian populism in rural places

In an opinion piece on the openDemocracy website, Ian Scoones, Saturnino (Jun) Borras, Lyda Fernanda Forero, Ruth Hall, Marc Edelman, Wendy Wolford and Ben White argue that, alongside class interests and inequalities, religion, gender dynamics, place and cultural identity all inform rising authoritarian populism in rural areas.

They further suggest that mobilizing alternatives to capture by regressive political forces is not straightforward.
