Current Populism in Europe: What has changed since the start of the pandemic?

6th PRAGUE POPULISM CONFERENCE WILL BE HELD ONLINE!!!

The coronavirus pandemic has changed political narratives, policymaking, and the behaviour of politicians in Europe. Populist actors, both in and out of government, have had to react to the new reality and adapt their rhetoric and communication styles to it. The goal of this on-line conference is to analyse recent changes in European populist parties and movements from different angles: How have the parties adapted their narratives? What is the new focus of their political programmes? Where do populists stand now in relation to mainstream parties and the media? Can we see a different approach towards liberal democratic values? What patterns can we see in the (mis)labelling of different social groups as scapegoats for the current crisis? Case studies from various European countries will provide a basis for the discussion.
