Conference on Consequences and Mitigation

Monday, June 24 - Wednesday, June 26

With populist forces gaining power in several countries for the first time in years, policymakers and citizens are more concerned than ever with populism’s consequences and how we should respond. In this conference, Team Populism explores the consequences of populism and how they are mitigated. Participants focus on different levels of analysis, including countries and the international system (democratic norms and institutions, economic and other policy outcomes, media behavior, and consequences for parties or party systems), as well as the level of individual citizens (social polarization and the psychology of populism). Participants will work towards the creation of an edited volume.
