The European Council on Foreign Relations comments about the pandemic’s influence on populism all over the world: Ill will: Populism and the coronavirus.
Sooner or later, the coronavirus will be gone. In the meantime, it will test Europe’s resilience against not just epidemics but misinformation and scapegoating. Populism can thrive as the coronavirus spreads. Whether it succeeds in doing so will largely depend on how politicians and the media talk about the virus.
The European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) is an award-winning international think-tank that aims to conduct cutting-edge independent research on European foreign and security policy and to provide a safe meeting space for decision-makers, activists and influencers to share ideas.
Many think tanks focus on studying the virus and its impact on economic, political, social and cultural processes in certain countries and in the world as a whole.
We have launched a new section – COVID-19: Research, where we monitor the leading research, analysis and statistics on Covid-19 in think tanks. We publish these materials so that our readers have access to quality analytics on those issues.
