Populist Fantasies: European revolts in context
Counterpoint today releases an edited volume on populism across Europe as part of the “Recapturing Europe’s Reluctant Radicals” project, supported by the Open Society Foundations. This second phase of the project aims to draw a careful picture of how populism emerges in specific national contexts.
The volume compiles ten pieces on the historical and cultural roots of populism in Greece, the UK, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands, Denmark, Poland, France, Germany and Italy, with an introduction by Counterpoint’s Director, Catherine Fieschi. The book will be launched today in Berlin at the seminar ‘Europe’s hidden wiring’.
