Description:
This module focuses on the concept of populism and instances of populism in the real world. Due to the recent rise of populist parties and candidates, populism has become a much-debated theme. The term is also problematic, as it is often ill defined, applied randomly and used in a pejorative manner. The module will focus on the meaning and implications of populism and the various ways in which it has been expressed throughout time and space.
