RESEARCH WORKSHOP

Populist Attitudes in Comparative Perspective

13 June 2018, University of Bamberg.




____Workshop concept
 

   Recent elections in Germany but also elsewhere have shown that populist parties are on the rise. No more are they mere outsiders at the edge of the political spectrum, but they even gained foothold within government coalitions. In recent years scholars increasingly devoted their intention to describing and analyzing populist attitudes, voters and parties. Yet, in many instances these insights remained specific to the distinctive fields of research. The workshop was designed to integrate ideas and explanations from various fields, i.e. political science, sociology, social psychology and communication science. In doing so, scholars discussed and put together combined approaches for analyzing and combatting populism.
