“Populism attaches itself to whatever issue provokes fear and outrage [and] hate speech leads to hate crime”.
Heather Grabbe joins Olga and Hugh on this week’s episode to discuss how populism works, why its appeal has grown in recent years and the threat it poses to European democracy. From its ideological adaptability and the role of digital media in amplifying its message to its role in fuelling deadly conflict, they examine what can be done to address the grievances that these parties feed off.
With special thanks to our producer, Bulle Media.
