Abstract

While support for the so-called “populist parties” appears to be growing all over Europe, many questions around this emergent phenomenon remain to be addressed. One such question is whether, and how, populism can be discerned as an attitude, or a set of attitudes, to be measured at the level of individual citizens. In this panel we want to gather scholars dealing with the study of populist and related attitudes, starting with researchers addressing their theoretical conceptualization, as well as their eventual operationalization in surveys or experiments. We also welcome papers looking at empirical evidence related to populist attitudes, either addressing the factors that lead to their development or examining the consequences of populist attitudes on wide array of variables, including support for democracy, trust in institutions, political efficacy, vote choice and other forms of political participation.
