Where next for populism?

Political Editor

How do you deal with rising populism? That was the dominant debate in the corridors at the EPP Summit in Helsinki this week.

As populist movements continue to grow in Europe and beyond, what is motivating them and where is it all heading?

In conversation with me for this week’s podcast is Professor Matthew Goodwin, author of ‘National Populism: The Revolt against Liberal Democracy’, and Dr Daphne Halikiopoulou of Reading University.

Goodwin believes cultural shifts are driving populism across the globe, whereas Halikiopoulou argues economic insecurity is a bigger factor at play.
