EU analysts say traditional parties should learn from populists

Italy's Five Star Movement, led by Beppe Grillo, wants blockchain to be used in streamlining public services.
“Traditional parties should learn from populists,” said Paolo Graziano, a professor of Political Science at the University of Padua, speaking at this year’s State of the Union conference, organised by the European University Institute in Florence.

“Citizens are asking for more coherence, more involvement and more caring about their everyday life,” he added, noting that social media is creating a new eagerness to get involved.

Even though party membership is dwindling in most countries, Europeans are interested in new forms of affiliation through social media and alternative political networks.

How should the EU stand up to the recurring temptation of ‘national democracy’?

Over the last few years, support for right-wing national populists has increased substantially in more than half of EU member states. Adam Balcer asks how it undermines European identity and how this challenge can be overcome.


Low-cost ideology

Calling it a low-cost ideology, Graziano explains that populists have filled the space left vacant by mainstream parties.
