About the action - Populist Political Communication in Europe
Despite the rise of populism across Europe, the presence and impact of populist political
communication has not been at the centre of scientific interest until now. The primary objective of this COST Action therefore is to produce up-to-date knowledge on this issue via a coordinated, comparative, comprehensive and concerted scientific effort. This includes defining and explaining populist communication as well as examining the similarities and differences between European societies with respect to
- populist actors and populist communicative strategies,
- the role of old and new media and
- the effects on citizens, and more widely European societies and the European public sphere.
This Action is specifically designed to provide a problem-oriented and policy-relevant response to this phenomenon.
