Populism Will Survive The Pandemic

Written by Yasmeen Serhan 22 August 2020

“The conclusion that populists’ shambolic handling of this crisis must be bad for populism as a whole is ultimately flawed...it ignores the fact that populism has been a permanent feature of modern democratic politics...even if leaders the likes of Trump and Bolsonaro were to lose power, that wouldn’t necessarily mean their exit from politics” (Yasmeen Serhan, 2020).
