Democracy and Populism: Dangerous Relationships?

DEMOS event explores populist parties, governance, communciations, and targets of populism

Faced with a variety of forms and the trivialization of its usage, the concept of populism has been criticized and refined. Should scholars abandon it when qualifying parties as diverse as the French National Rally, the Italian Five Star Movement, or the Hungarian Fidesz? Should scientists consider these manifestations of populism as a political style?

DEMOS and its consortium member Centre for Research on Mediations (CREM, University of Lorraine) will explore pressing questions about populism and discuss results stemming from the DEMOS project in France, Italy, and Hungary in a face-to-face study day event on 30 May 2022. Registration is required and free of charge to attend the event, which will be held in French and English. Read more about the programme and registration below.
