Democracy in the age of populism

Jonas Linde, professor at the Department of Comparative Politics, UiB, was awarded a FRIHUMSAM-grant for the project "Democracy in the age of populism". The project aims to explore how the growth of the radical right has fuelled political polarization and mistrust - and what can be done about it.

Linde will use the Norwegian Citizen Panel to collect data, and cooperate with Stefan Dahlberg and Elisabeth Ivarsflaten, DIGSSCORE researchers and leaders, along with Andrej Kokkonen of Aarhus University and Eelco Harteveld, University of Amsterdam.
