‘Populism and Foreign Policy’ is a research project funded by the German Research Foundation that investigates the impact of populism on foreign policy from a comparative perspective. The project attempts to explain variations in the international behaviour of populist governments and to theorize populist foreign policy through an iterative, abductive process.
In their forthcoming article ‘Populism and the Politicization of Foreign Policy’ (co-authored with Hakki Tas) in the British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Sandra Destradi and Johannes Plagemann explore the impact of populism on foreign policy through a comparative lens. Stay tuned!
