Domestic Consequences

The "domestic consequences" team focuses on institutional as well as policy consequences of populism. It seeks to understand how populism affects politics and policies, while simultaneously paying specific attention to the multifaceted relationship between populism and (liberal) democracy. On the on hand, the Team puts a specific emphasis on institutional change, from institutional engineering to the erosion of informal political standards and norms, on the other hand, it investigates matters of political economy, from standard macroeconomic outcomes to human development to corruption. The Team's focus ranges from individual-level to more meso- and aggregate-level consequences of populism. It relies on a wide variety of methodological approaches and does not restrict itself to a particular country-setting.
