Of course national contexts are specific and differ from one country to another; it is however hard not to associate the vote in the US on 8 November 2016 with the British referendum on 23 June of the same year. The 'West' is experiencing a 'populist moment' and continental Europe is not being spared. The argument at the centre of this text is that the various forms of populism - which are feeding a Eurosceptic and even Europhobic discourse - all converge towards a crisis over liberalism which has to be surmounted if we are to prevent our societies from closing on the modern world.
