Tidal Waves? The Political Economy of Populism and Migration in Europe


In recent elections across the European Union, parties adopting an anti-immigration stance and making use of populist rhetoric have been gaining electoral breakthrough. Against this backdrop, and in order to contribute to a deeper understanding of the connections binding migration and populism dynamics in Europe, this volume aims to trigger a discussion on the causes and consequences of the rise of populism in Europe, and deconstruct the rhetorical frames it uses to depict migratory flows as an exceptional phenomenon.

Volume published by Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence “Europe in the World” at the Department of European and International Studies of King's College London. Presented in Rome on 16 July 2019.
