Cultural Backlash: Trump, Brexit and Authoritarian Populism

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Jun 05, 2019 | Cambridge University Press, Pippa Norris, Ronal Inglehart,

Authoritarian populist parties have advanced in many countries, and entered government in Austria, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and Switzerland. Even small parties can still shift the policy agenda, as shown by UKIP's role in catalysing Brexit. Pippa Norris and Ronal Inglehart, in this publication by Cambridge University Press, advance a theory to explain why the silent revolution in values triggered a backlash fuelling support for authoritarian,-populist parties and leaders in the U.S. and Europe. Their conclusion highlights the dangers and what could be done to mitigate the risks to liberal democracy.
