Eric Kaufmann

Eric Kaufmann is Professor of Politics at Birkbeck College, University of London.  He specialises in nationalism, political demography, and demography of the religious and irreligious. His most recent book ‘Whiteshift: Populism, Immigration and the Future of White Majorities’ argues that the current upsurge of right-wing populism in the West stems from the existential plight of white majorities in an age of large-scale North-South migration. He is also editor of the journal Nations & Nationalism, and has written for New York Times, Times of London, Financial Times, Newsweek International, Foreign Policy and Prospect magazines.


“Kaufmann has done something exceedingly rare among center-right thinkers…to write an intelligent, challenging, and in its own way, brave book about race and identity; one not meant to fire up partisans but to make an honest attempt to understand our present dilemmas and propose a solution.” New York Magazine
