On 15 May, Counterpoint held the discussion panel Shaping the vote: politics and populism in the media. The event took place at the Lecture Theatre of the Free Word Centre.
The event was part of the project ‘Nurturing populism? The impact of the media on the growth of populist right-wing parties in Netherlands, France and Finland’, coordinated by Counterpoint and supported by the Foundation for Democracy and Media and the Wihuri Foundation.
Counterpoint is an independent research and advisory group helping organisations understand the cultural and social dynamics of risk. In The Threats of Populism–Europe’s Reluctant Radicals programme of research and advocacy, Counterpoint investigates the continuing trend of xenophobic populism in Europe.
