Key questions will include: What do populists have in common ? Do nationalist parties fill the charisma gap in Europe's politics ?  Are Eurosceptics protesting or do they have a programme ? Where will EU legitimacy come from in future years ? How does the format of European elections encourage protest voting ? What roles is social media playing in the new politics of populism ? Is the new nationalism undermining the European Project ?

Such knowledge plays an increasingly crucial role in practical decision-making and strategic planning, where Europe-wide and global contact and negotiation is required on our website. Click here to view matriculations photos from Oxford and for students' views on the course see a summary of results plus a selection of anonymous quotes taken from recent evaluation forms, and student views from an article from the Europaeum Review.   Please support our recruitment efforts and distribute the attached Poster to students and colleagues and on noticeboards.
