Populist rhetoric: Front National

This is the fourth of a series of briefings by Counterpoint leading up to the European Parliament elections. These briefings are designed to help those looking to build a counter-narrative to populist rhetoric in Europe – including politicians and campaigners.

This series of briefings examines the rhetoric of populist politicians in the European Parliament. We analyse exchanges between populists and their fellow MEPs and give recommendations for how to respond effectively to their rhetoric. The briefings are for politicians and campaigners who are looking to build a response to populist parties both inside and outside the Parliament: building on our extensive research on populist parties, we hope that they can be a useful advocacy tool for countering populism.
