Abstract

What can the rise and success of Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez tell us about populism? Cristóbal Rovira Kaltwasser takes an in-depth look at the lessons the EU’s leaders can draw from Chávez to deal with the recent rise of populist movements in Europe. He argues that opponents to populism must understand that populists are not only representing real constituencies of society, but that opposition to them can be a source of further reinforcement and radicalisation.
