The Populism Seminar TEAM
Dr. Annika Werner
SENIOR LECTURER, Australian National University
Annika's research focuses on the development and challenges of democracy, with a special focus on the role of political parties. In particular, I analyse Eurosceptic and radical right populist party behaviour and representation from a comparative perspective.
Dr. Andrej Zaslove
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, Radboud University Nijmegen
Andrej's research examines populism and political parties. He focuses on measuring populism (citizens' attitudes), on populism and democracy, on populism and foreign policy, on populism and gender, and on the influence of populism on party systems.
Dr. Robert Huber
POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER, University of Salzburg
Robert's research focuses on challenges to (liberal) democracy, induced by populism and globalisation, such as climate change, environmental degradation, and trade liberalisation.
Dr. Maurits Meijers
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, Radboud University Nijmegen
Maurits' research focuses on political representation and the competition between political parties. Specifically, he is interested in representation and party competition in European Union politics as well as in questions concerning the quality of representation and democracy.
