Prof. Dr. Pip­pa Nor­ris re­fe­riert zu fol­gen­dem The­ma “Cultural Backlash and the Rise of Authoritarian Populism”.

Abstract: Ri­sing vo­ting sup­port for par­ties blen­ding po­pu­list and aut­ho­ri­ta­ri­an ap­peals has dis­rup­ted main­stream par­ty com­pe­ti­ti­on in many Eu­ro­pean so­cie­ties – and had ma­jor con­se­quen­ces world­wi­de. What ex­plains this pheno­me­non? The stu­dy theo­ri­zes that an im­portant part of any ex­pla­na­ti­on lies in per­cei­ved cul­tu­ral thre­ats,  whe­re ra­pid and pro­found va­lue chan­ge in post-in­dus­tri­al so­cie­ties du­ring re­cent de­ca­des have af­fec­ted core fee­lings of so­ci­al iden­ti­ty, wrap­ped around va­lues of fa­mi­ly, faith and na­ti­on. The­se de­ve­lop­ments have ge­ne­ra­ted a ‘cul­tu­ral back­lash’ ac­tivat­ing aut­ho­ri­ta­ri­an va­lues and vo­ting sup­port for po­pu­list par­ties with aut­ho­ri­ta­ri­an po­li­cy po­si­ti­ons, es­pe­cial­ly among  ol­der and non-col­le­ge edu­ca­ted ci­ti­zens.

To con­sider the­se is­su­es, Part I de­ve­lops the con­cep­tu­al and theo­re­ti­cal frame­work. Part II esti­ma­tes the ideo­lo­gi­cal po­si­ti­on of all Eu­ro­pean po­li­ti­cal par­ties on Aut­ho­ri­ta­ri­an and Po­pu­list in­de­xes, from ex­pert CHES data. We also ope­ra­tio­na­li­ze and mea­su­res Aut­ho­ri­ta­ri­an and Po­pu­list va­lues in the mass elec­to­ra­te, from the poo­led Eu­ro­pean So­ci­al Sur­vey 2002-2014. Part III uses mul­ti­le­vel mo­dels to ex­ami­ne the links bet­ween va­lues and vo­tes. The con­clu­si­on sum­ma­ri­zes the key fin­dings and con­siders their im­pli­ca­ti­ons.

Pip­pa Nor­ris ist Pro­fes­so­rin für Re­gie­rung und In­ter­na­tio­na­le Be­zie­hun­gen an der Uni­ver­si­ty of Syd­ney und Paul F.

Trento Festival: Cultural Backlash

In recent years, many Western countries have witnessed the affirmation of political cultures that oppose the people to the elite and which call for protectionism and the restoration of national sovereignty. At international level, the abandonment of multilateralism is advocated in the name of bilateralism, considering the supranational institutions instituted after the Second World War to be useless or harmful. 
What explains these developments? This question will be at the center of the next edition of the Trento Economics Festival, from 30 May to 2 June 2019.

Cultural Backlash talk at the LSE

Populist challengers have disrupted long established patterns of party competition in many contemporary Western societies, as exemplified by Donald Trump in the US, Marine Le Pen in France, Nigel Farage in the UK, and Geert Wilders in the Netherlands.

The project for a new book Cultural Backlash seeks to analyse the phenomenon of Populist-Authoritarianism and its mass appeal as a style of governance which threatens progressive values as well as core principles and practices of liberal democracy.
