Abstract

There has been a surge in academic and media interest in populism, fuelled mainly by the election of Donald Trump. But as misleading comparisons with Venezuela's Hugo Chávez show, the concept obscures more than it illuminates, while also marginalising any challenge to a dysfunctional "moderate centre", writes Barry Cannon (Maynooth University).
