Populism: The Roles of Institutions & Discourse – Tatiana Romashko

University of Jyväskylä

“Populism and Nationalism just recently have become international phenomena. Post-structural theoretical perspective tends to see this issue as a part of a broader external context (e.g. sociocultural and economic), which, presumably, has a political ontology.

For me personally, a nature of populism is a less interesting issue rather than those institutional and discursive formations that create a favourable environment for its mobilisation. Therefore, the question is what type of power relations encourages populism as the most preferable or the only possible (in case of Russia) way of oppositional contestation or public questioning of the current governmental regime.”
