The Populist Signal – Why Politics and Democracy Need to Change
This publication is about the turbulent political scene unfolding in Britain and across western Europe. About the rise of populists as a product of disillusionment with political parties and elections, of people feeling like they do not have a voice in the decisions being taken by those who are meant to represent them. It focuses not on the economic and cultural determinants of populism, but on why large swathes of voters feel that politics does not work and how this fuels support for insurgent parties and actors.
