Abstract

The objective of this report is to understand the roots of Europe’s trust deficit, the consequent decline in support for established political parties and institutions, and growing scepticism towards the European Union. We connect up these developments with the literature on populism, which we define as a political tendency distinguished by its anti-elite, authoritarian and nationalist elements, and rooted in economic insecurity and identity politics.
