Professor Matthew Goodwin on the future of populist politics

Populism is here to stay, according to Matthew Goodwin, Professor of Politics at the University of Kent and co-author of National Populism: The Revolt Against Liberal Democracy.  He says it will be a political presence across the West and beyond for the foreseeable future.

In the latest episode of The New World podcast, Matthew was hosted by Jack Dickens to talk about the future of populism – and liberal democracy – after the coronavirus pandemic. They discussed the rise of national populist parties in Europe, the emergence of identity politics before and after the end of the Cold War, and the likely outcome of the 2020 United States presidential election.
