Old Ghosts In New Sheets: European Populist Parties And Foreign Policy


07 Apr 2011


EU Priorities 2020

The Centre for European Studies (CES) has published a new paper, entitled Old Ghosts in New Sheets: European populist parties and foreign policy. The paper, authored by Angelos Chryssogelos, formerly a Research Fellow at CES, shows that although populist parties are on the rise, their ideology and political positions are often not well understood. Chryssogelos' paper focuses on the foreign policy positions of five radical populist parties on the right and left in Western Europe. It covers these parties' views of the United States, Russia, the Middle East and global governance. It argues that examining their foreign policy positions reveals what unites populists of all stripes. Analysing these foreign policies enables us to understand and challenge their simplistic and monolithic vision of domestic society. Please find a link to the electronic version of the paper here.


This paper was launched at a lunch discussion in the European Parliament in Brussels on 31 March 2011. The lunch discussion was hosted by Corien Wortmann-Kool, MEP, Vice-President of the European People's Party, and chaired by the CES Director Tomi Huhtanen.
