Gender and Populism
November 29 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Speaker: Hilde Coffe (University of Bath), and Ov Cristian Norocel (Lund University)
While the research on populism has blossomed, its intersection with gender is still in its infancy. Only recently, studies started to scrutinise the gender dimension of populist (racial right) parties’ politics. Understanding this dimension has substantial implications. Who votes for populist parties cannot be fully captured without scrutinising the “men’s parties” (Mudde 2007) dimension of populism. Similarly, the leadership characteristics of populist parties have recently transformed, its effects are unclear. Finally, populist parties actively put forward issues positions related to gender. This roundtable offers new insights into a hot yet often overlooked dimension of populism.
