‘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.
Sandra Destradi and Johannes Plagemann, in collaboration with David Cadier, have recently published an article titled “Populism and Foreign Policy: a research agenda” as part of a special issue that reflects on the impact of populism on foreign policy in a range of European countries.
On 23 June 2021, Sandra Destradi will participate in a roundtable on the international implications of populism at the Cluster of Excellence ‘Contestation of the Liberal Script (SCRIPTS)’.
Today marks the official start of our project. We are very excited to share our work in the months and years to come – and stay tuned for more updates!
