Everyone is warning about the dangers of populism. From Human Rights Watch to Tony Blair’s new Institute for Global Change, the million-dollar question everyone is asking – but few are answering – is, how can we defeat populism?
A recent report by the World Forum for Democracy, which organized a conference in November titled Is Populism a Problem?”, attended by more than 2,000 people from 80 countries, present many interesting recommendations. However, while the report is promising, there still some way to go before this is turned into effective policies.
