Abstract

Populism is currently one of the most debated phenomena yet, due to its elusive nature, many scholars are still struggling not only to define populism but also to measure it. Recent elections have proven the need to analyse voter’s attitudes and motivations, party behaviour and activities beyond traditional media or printed party manifestos. Following and researching social media – and their rapidly growing influence on the formulation of political attitudes and choices – is also now a key consideration. In this panel, we analyse how to measure populism and populist attitudes in Europe. Papers presented during the session will analyse populist rhetoric using data collected from social media (Facebook) and online surveys as well as party manifestos, party webpages and an “item-count” experiment.
