Recent political events – from Trump’s election to the outcome of the Brexit referendum – have somehow caught the world by surprise, and are contributing to a growing sense of concern or even alarm about the future of the Western world and, particularly, Western democracies as we know them.

When looking at the political landscape in Europe, populism looks like an unprecedented game-changer. Populists parties are in power in Poland and Hungary, they are in the coalition governments in Switzerland and Finland, top the polls in France and the Netherlands, and their support is at record highs in Sweden. Not to mention the recent rise of Alternative für Deutschland in Germany and the successful story of Syriza, Podemos and of the Five Stars Movement in Southern Europe.

The volume explores the rise of populism in Europe and the US by analyzing its root causes and the rationale behind its success. It also draws some policy recommendations to tackle the populist challenge.

Nato ottant’anni fa, l’ISPI è un think tank indipendente dedicato allo studio delle dinamiche internazionali, con l’obiettivo di favorire la consapevolezza del ruolo dell’Italia in un contesto globale in continua evoluzione. È l’unico istituto italiano – e fra i pochissimi in Europa – ad affiancare all’attività di ricerca un altrettanto significativo impegno nella formazione, nella convegnistica e nelle attività specifiche di analisi e orientamento sugli scenari internazionali per imprese ed enti. Tutta l’attività è caratterizzata da un approccio interdisciplinare – assicurato dalla stretta collaborazione tra specialisti in studi economici, politici, giuridici, storici e strategici, provenienti anche da ambiti non accademici – e dalla partnership con analoghe istituzioni di tutto il mondo.


The Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI) is an independent think tank dedicated to being a resource for government officials, business executives, journalists, civil servants, students and the public at large wishing to better understand international issues. It monitors geopolitical areas as well as major trends in international affairs.
Founded in Milan in 1934, ISPI is the only Italian Institute – and one of the few in Europe – to place research activities side by side to training, organization of international conferences, and the analysis of the international environment for businesses. Comprehensive interdisciplinary analysis is achieved through close collaboration with experts (academics and non-academics alike) in political, economic, legal, historical and strategic studies and through an ever-growing network of think tanks, research centers and Universities in Europe and beyond
