How Populism Deals with Complexity

Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at 4:30pm

Uris Hall, G08
Central Campus

There is a strong tendency in social and political sciences to simplify the academic use of the concept of populism. This is what populists do when they dichotomise reality into friends and enemies. The goal of this talk is to highlight and discuss why scholars have to develop an adaptive and multifaceted perspective, and how changing realities across Europe and the United States, including the experience of Covid-19 pandemic, might contribute to strengthen this perspective.

Oscar Mazzoleni, Professor of Political Science and Political Sociology, University of Lausanne
