About this lecture

A distinction is often made between left-wing and potentially democratising populism and right-wing and undemocratic populism. However, Michael Zürn suggests that this view fails to recognise the core of the real challenge to democracy. Namely, it is primarily authoritarian populists who have come to power and then also undermine democracy. Authoritarian populists have a broad ideology that attacks the weaknesses of existing democracy. They are particularly dangerous when they challenge the liberal truth regime.
