Populist Resistance Against the European Liberal Democratic Order: Hungary, the UK and Supranational Institutions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This paper focusses on populist resistance against the EU and the European Convention of Human Rights, in Hungary and the UK. Both countries seem to voice a more general quest away from Europeanization and towards more national sovereignty, which will undoubtedly result in important constitutional changes in the coming years. In this paper, I shall first of all study the notion of populism in general as it manifests itself in many countries in the West. Secondly, the focus is on Hungary and the UK – countries that are witnessing increasing resistance against European institutions as a result of populist influence. Thirdly, the background of their revolt is analyzed. Finally, the article will ponder the consequences of the populist challenge to liberal democracy.
