This symposium seeks to bring together scholars from Europe and America to consider populism and its relationship to the contemporary communication ecology.
The COST Action network brings together researchers to investigate populist political communication and its impact on democratic political life across Europe. The keynote address will present from the forthcoming Norris-Inglehart book on Cultural Backlash.
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.
