Populism & Ideologies in Times of Crisis
3-4 (Thursday-Friday) June 2021

Time: 10:00am-1pm (CET)
The world is currently undergoing a profound political, economic, health, and environmental crisis. The ‘crisis’ resembles the zeitgeist, a reminder of the uncertainty and volatility about the future of the world that we live in. The disruptive power of crisis allows for a fundamental reconfiguration of the concepts and mind maps which orientate our views of the world.
Not only have the manifold crises disrupted liberal democracy globally and undermined its credibility but have also urged us to rethink political ideologies in times of a continuous lack of political imagination.
The Mini Conference: Populism and Ideologies in Times of Crisis, organized jointly by both the Populism (PRU) and Ideology (IRU) Research Units at The Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right (CARR) seeks to address some of these key issues in global politics.
We welcome Abstract proposals (150 words maximum) from CARR colleagues addressing the diverse fields relating to “Populism, Ideologies, Extremism, Liberal Democratic Governance and Crises. The authors can, amongst others, address the following subjects:
• The impact of crisis on conceptualizing Populism as an ideology
• Populism in specific policy domains under Crisis
• Comparative Populism and Ideology studies
• Populism and Expertise
