Populism And Civic Engagement – a fine-grained, dynamic, context-sensitive and forward-looking response to negative populist tendencies

Project description

New tools to confront populist tendencies

The populist movements that have emerged across Europe claiming to challenge liberal elites and represent the ‘ordinary people’ contain tendencies threatening the EU. The EU-funded PaCE project aims to confront these negative tendencies of the populist movements, perform specific interventions, and contribute to the making of a solid democratic and institutional foundation for EU citizens. The project will analyse the causes, rise, specific challenges to liberal democracy, transitions related to leadership changes and consequences of these movements. PaCE will propose responses and develop risk analyses for each type of movement and transition by employing an agent-based simulation of political processes and conducts. The project team will develop new tools relying on machine learning algorithms.
