Populism is quite an interesting topic for many political scientists. We know that, right-wing populism is a global phenomenon and it challenges several pillars of liberal democracy.
Dr Luca Manucci is a researcher interested in the link between populism and collective memory. In a comparative way, he analyzes the presence of populism through content analysis and links its presence to several demand- and supply-side factors, trying to determine the impact of collective memories of the authoritarian past.
His book titled “Populism and Collective Memory Comparing Fascist Legacies in Western Europe” was published last year.
His blog is also very interesting : POP – Political Observer on Populism (populismobserver.com)
I made an interview with him about his work and bookBegum Burak
