The past eighteen months have seen a dramatic altering of the global political landscape. From the election of Donald Trump in the US and Britain’s vote for BREXIT to the surprising win of Emmanuel Macron in France, ‘populist’ leaders have capitalised on the deep disenchantment of voters, and their growing disdain for the political establishment. This period has born witness to the rise of the ‘anti-politician’, as the antidote. Do these political trends signal a shift to a more effective and inclusive democracy, or are they a sign of its potential undoing? Our panel of experts examine a range of interconnected trends that are both fueling, and being shaped by, rising populism: from increasing inequalities and mass immigration to the altering of long-standing international agreements.
