So, what is all this populism about?!

Nuno Severiano Teixeira

CCB

Populism is on the rise everywhere. In the West and in the East, in both the small and the great powers. On the left and on the right, in both government and opposition. Populism has become a buzzword in the discourse of politics and the media. People talk about populist ideology, populist parties, the populist style, populist leaders. But, after all, what are we talking about when we talk about populism? This is the aim of these conversations: to try and understand the nature of this phenomenon that is sweeping across the contemporary world. What is populism? Is it an enemy or an ally of democracy? Is it the same in the United States of Trump and the Europe of Orban and Salvini? And are we, in Portugal, safe from potential populisms?
