How is Populism and Health Associated in Europe (PHASE)? A multilevel analysis of the bi-directional interrelationship between populism and ill health

Project description

The link between populism and ill health

The rise of populist parties in Europe represents a serious challenge for intellectuals and policymakers. The origins of and reasons for populist success in many countries are analysed in debates over general and specific issues relating to populist participation in government. It has been observed that discrimination against vulnerable communities is associated with populist power practices, and that this is having an impact on public health. However, there is no cross-country research on the links between ill health and populism. The EU-funded PHASE project will examine the relationship between services for those with ill health and populists in power, and consider whether ill health might be a warning sign for the future of democracies. In addition, it will assess the public health impact of populists in power.
