Exploring the reach of populism
The EU-funded INT-NAT project aims to explore the complex nexus between right wing populism in South Asia and the global networks that have contributed to its success. The project will particularly focus on South Asian populist networks in the United Kingdom and the United States. Two groups will be studied, namely the connections of the Indian and the Pakistani ruling political parties. INT-NAT will use a variety of methods to examine diversity within these groups and explore intergenerational differences between younger members of the groups and members of Indian and Pakistani university student societies. The urgency of this work stems from the rise of populism in different parts of the world, creating the need to explore potential transnational networks.
