For some, Jeremy Corbyn is a populist, for others not. For some, it’s a good thing that he is a populist, for others not. Pitting the many against the few, and the great emphasis on Corbyn as the leader may suggest that Corbynism is a form of Left populism. Others argue that Corbyn is more old school social democrat. We ask if Corbyn is a populist. Drawing on their experiences with populist politics in the UK, France, Spain and Denmark, the speakers discuss what it means if Corbyn is a populist: is populism a viable electoral strategy? And, once in power, what can we expect of a Left populist government?
Speakers: Tim Bale (Queen Mary) (tbc), Philippe Marliere (UCL), Oscar Garcia Agustin (Aalborg University).
