The Trump Presidency and the Rise of Populism in the Global Context

IPC Research and Academic Affairs Coordinator and Associate Professor at Sabancı University Senem Aydın-Düzgit and IPC Director and Professor at Sabancı University Fuat Keyman‘s policy brief, “The Trump Presidency and the Rise of Populism in the Global Context” was published.

Donald Trump’s ascendancy to power after the U.S. presidential election in November 2016 has fueled debates on the global rise of populism. In the wake of the resurgent populist movement, the United States has become the first long-established Western democracy currently ruled by a right-wing populist leader. This policy brief examines the current debate on populism, its causes, and remedies in light of this election and proposes new modes of responding to this phenomenon within liberal democracies.
