The Thinking Lab on Populism is dealing with one of the fastest growing phenomena in current European politics. The Lab members are working together to identify common features of so-called populist movements, to analyse the root causes of populism in Europe and to present solutions and policy recommendations to strategically tackle illiberal populism.
During the second Thinking Lab Summit in Paris, Orange Magazine spoke with Elena García Mañes and Filipe Santos Henrique. They talked about their stances on Populism in Europe.
Civil society actors from six European countries present their policy brief on Populism in Europe. The Thinking Lab developed nine policy recommendations focusing on the creation of trust between citizens and the political sphere.
The first European Thinking Lab took place from 25-27 November in Lisbon. During the Summit, the contributors cooperated within their Thinking Lab and worked out brief policy proposals. Félix Blanc is engaged with the topic of a Security Pivot towards a Police State in France.
