Abstract

The purpose of this concluding chapter is two-fold. On the one hand, we want to tease out and summarize the key fi ndings of the diff erent chapters. What do these studies tell us, collectively? On the other hand, we want to extrapolate from these fi ndings and the current literature to off er concrete stakeholder advice to politicians, journalists, and citizens who are all confronted with the challenge of populist politics and populist messages. For discussions of the limitations of this research and future research directions, we refer the reader back to the conclusions of the individual chapters where these are discussed in detail.

Abstract

First, the authors in this collection begin with the assumption that populism can only be fully understood if the role played by communication and the media is taken seriously. Second, the authors in this volume argue that our understanding of populism can hugely benefit from systematic comparisons of various national contexts, various groups of actors or organizations, and different types of media.

Abstract

This chapter reflects on the paradox of Eurosceptic populists critical of the European Union mobilizing ideas of European values, heritage, and civilization. We examine the role of the past and especially of a certain understanding of ‘European heritage’ in far-right-wing populist, nationalist discourse in Europe today.

Abstract

This chapter takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject of memorialization and commemoration, protest and populism in relation to the performative enacting and official presentation of difficult history. It analyzes the various actors instrumentalizing the same dark heritage in different ways, by different means, and for different purposes, to draw conclusions about processes of coming to terms with the past ( Vergangenheitsbewältigung ) in relation to the contemporary context of populism and migration.

Abstract

"The Political Economy of Populism explores the interplay between identity, the economy and inequality to explain the dynamics of populist votes since the beginning of the 20th century. The book discusses the political and economic implications of populist governance using data on populist incumbencies and linking it to historical data on the macro economy and democracy. Chapters draw from the most recent political science, economics and other social science literature, as well as historical data, to explain the long-term causes and consequences of populism. Populism emerges and gains traction when political entrepreneurs exploit underlying identity conflicts for political gains. As the distributional consequences of both economic distress and economic growth typically favor the elite over the poor and the lower middle class, economic shocks usually sharpen the underlying identity conflicts between the groups. The book provides evidence of significant differences in the ways fiscal and monetary policies are conducted by incumbent populists in Latin America, Europe and the OECD. The work concludes by suggesting avenues through which a 21st century social consensus can be built, so that our society can avoid repeating the mistakes that led to wars and failed economic experiments in the 20th century. This book marks a significant contribution to the study of populism and is suited to students and scholars across the social sciences, including economics, political science and sociology. "

Abstract

The tenth volume of the yearbook Turkish-German Studies examines the question of how German-Turkish relations have changed as a result of the growing popularity of right-wing populist parties in Germany, the attempted coup in Turkey in 2016 and the refugee agreement between the EU and Turkey. The contributions deal with right-wing populism and right-wing radicalism, values and the scientific subject position in intercultural research activities.

Abstract

Die Schweizerische Volkspartei ist binnen 25 Jahren von einer braven Klientelpartei zum politischen Taktgeber avanciert. Sie ist nicht nur die stärkste politische Kraft des Landes, sondern auch ein Vorbild des europäischen Rechtspopulismus. Marius Hildebrand beleuchtet die Karriere der SVP mithilfe der formalen Populismustheorie Ernesto Laclaus. Im Unterschied zu sozialstrukturellen und ideologiekritischen Analysen, die den Populismus als Anomalie perspektivieren, wird er hier als Effekt einer diskursiven Transformation der politischen Schweiz betrachtet.

Abstract

After President Trump’s election, BREXIT and the widespread rise of far-Right political parties, much public discussion has intensely focused on populism and authoritarianism. In the middle of the twentieth century, members of the early Frankfurt School prolifically studied and theorized fascism and anti-Semitism in Germany and the United States. In this volume, leading European and American scholars apply insights from the early Frankfurt School to present-day authoritarian populism, including the Trump phenomenon and related developments across the globe. Chapters are arranged into three sections exploring different aspects of the topic: theories, historical foundations, and manifestations via social media. Contributions examine the vital political, psychological and anthropological theories of early Frankfurt School thinkers, and how their insights could be applied now amidst the insecurities and confusions of twenty-first century life. The many theorists considered include Adorno, Fromm, Löwenthal and Marcuse, alongside analysis of Austrian Facebook pages and Trump’s tweets and operatic media drama. This book is a major contribution towards deeper understanding of populism’s resurgence in the age of digital capitalism.
