Right-wing populist movements have emerged as significant political forces in Western Europe and North America--not to mention other locales, such as Brazil and the Philippines. While one can point to various family resemblances across nations, as well as international alliances among the right-wing parties, the differences are also evident. Does the concept of populism help us in making sense of their emergence and determining if and when they pose a threat to liberal democracy? This talk is intended to offer reflections on the analytical utility of the term.
