Aims and Scope

Populism is a topic currently under consideration by academics, civil society, stakeholders and the general public. The revolt on the right, as embodied in leaders, such as Salvini and Le Pen, and social movements, such as Occupy Wall Street, to name but a few, has been labelled populist. However, academics are not in agreement when it comes to defining, identifying and conceptualising populism, its manifestations and its relationship with liberal democracies. To this end, The Interdisciplinary Journal of Populism seeks to fill the current scientific gap by heightening academic awareness, interaction and discussion on populism, around the world, in a holistic manner, through a variety of disciplines including, but not limited to, political science, law, sociology, media studies, linguistics, gender studies and educational science, with an interest in interdisciplinary work. To this end, the journal encompasses a wide range of areas including, but not limited to, theoretical, normative and contextual discussions of populism and its multiple expressions, the reasons for the rise in populism and the forms of its manifestation, the relationship between populism and the law, the role of new media and mass communication in this framework, the position of gender in populist rhetoric and the role of education in times of populism.
