Event Agenda

Economic Policy

Annual CEPS-Intereconomics conference

New political parties and peoples’ movements have been on the rise in Europe and worldwide for over a decade. This has gone hand-in-hand with the great recession, fiscal adjustments, an increase in migration, cultural backlash and the rise of nationalism and euroscepticism. How are changes in the political landscape, particularly the rise of populist sentiment, playing out across Europe? Are there common economic determinants of the developments among individual European countries or regions? What are the economic consequences of the populist wave in Europe? Has this sentiment run its course? Will the center and traditional parties be revived? What role, if any, has the EU played in the rise of populism and what does it mean for the future of the European Union?
