Populism was the word of 2016. From Brexit to Trump, journalists and pundits agreed that populism is on the rise and is shaking up western democracies. But what is populism and why is it so successful now? These interesting questions and many more will be addressed in this public lecture given by Dutch political scientist Cas Mudde.

The lecture is organised by Science & Cocktails in collaboration with CRIC and is part of a research project on Human Rights and Peacebuilding organised by CRIC and the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) and funded by the Carlsberg Foundation.
