Who’s afraid of the populist wolf?

Writing at opendemocracy.net, Counterpoint’s Catherine Fieschi responds to Philippe Marlière’s recent article which claims that the notion of populism is ill-defined and ambiguous and offers little heuristic value. In her piece, Fieschi discusses the traps populism creates for democrats and argues that populism may not be entirely coherent, but it has a consistent logic and a line of distinction along which it treads that marks it out and accounts for its power.
