Teams


Causes

The causes team focuses on the underlying origins of populism with the intention to shed light on the reasons why we observe patterns of (electoral) success and failure of populist forces and influence across different country and at different times. This team is particularly interested in single and comparative case studies that seek to theoretically explore and empirically test potential sources of populism. These roots may range from individual and psychological constructs to more societal and macro-political factors. Altogether, the team seeks to develop a broader theoretical and empirical framework to better understand the causes of populism. In doing so, it relies on a wide variety of methodological approaches and does not restrict itself to a particular country-setting.
