Social Democracy and Populism

Sarah de Lange (University of Amsterdam) talks to Steven M. Van Hauwaert about the relationship between social democracy and populism. Sarah gives a clear overview of how social democracy is argued to be currently in decay and provides further insights into what populism has to do with this. Extensive research highlights the multi-faceted relationship between populism and democracy, but how about populism and social democracy? Can they exist together and perhaps more importantly, how can social democracy react to the challenges of populism?
