Summary:

Political change has accelerated since the end of the Cold War. Over the last two and a half decades, the EU has developed various response mechanisms for challenges to its integration project. Some methods are no longer credible, while others should be developed to make them more effective. Looking forward, the EU should focus on five specific ways to combat the rise of populism:

  • Isolate extremists
  • Challenge undemocratic practices
  • Convert the newcomers
  • Adapt priorities to address citizens’ discontent
  • Let the people in
