    Project Details


    This project aims to investigate how populism intersects with localism through systematic, comparative, and indepthempirical study of three populist parties inextricably associated with heartlands in Australia, Germany andSpain. This project expects to generate new knowledge about how populists utilise the language of localism andhow peoples attachment to place shapes their support for populists. Expected outcomes of the project include anew understanding of how populism and localism affect one another; and identification of how right and leftpopulist support are differently affected by community engagement and participation. Benefits include theidentification of local interventions to lessen the appeal of exclusionary populisms.
