Podcast: The political economy of populism

Philip Manow discusses populism, trade and migration as part of Examining Populism series.

Philip Manow, Professor for Comparative Political Economy at the University of Bremen and member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science, spoke on populist protest in Europe on 25 April at the Hertie School, as part of the school’s Examining Populism event series. His talk focused on the vulnerability of countries to the two most powerful features of globalisation: the movement of goods and capital across borders, and migration, and he explored the geographic variations in different types of populism across Europe and in other parts of the world. 

The Examining Populism series invites speakers of different disciplinary backgrounds for discussions on the causes, effects and implications of the populist rise. It is co-chaired by Hanna Schwander, Professor of Public Policy, and Christian Flachsland, Assistant Professor of Climate and Energy Governance at the Hertie School of Governance.
