Professor Daphne Halikiopoulou delivered the Next Left lecture on "What to do about right-wing populism" yesterday at the European Parliament in Brussels in conjunction with Foundation for European Progressive Studies.

Daphne focused on right-wing populist parties, their multifacetedness, and the diversity of their voters’ profiles. She also discussed the main points on which the progressives’ response should structure itself.

The Next Left Lecture and strategic colloquium are the new features of one of the longest-existing FEPS initiatives, the Next Left Research Programme. The latter has been run since 2009 with the support of Karl–Renner-Institute and many other FEPS members, with the ambition to contribute to progressive thinking, propose innovative paths, and help reinforce social democrats on the local, regional, national, European and global levels.
