Based on the conceptual, empirical, and theoretical framework developed in his forthcoming Populism and Liberal Democracy: A Comparative and Theoretical Analysis (Oxford University Press, April 2019), Takis Pappas ventures to answer ten major questions: What is populism? Why does it matter? Who are the populists? Who are not populists? Where does populism thrive? What causes populism? How does populism rule? Which are the possible pathways for populist democracies to take? Why does populism threaten democracy? Can populism be resisted?
