POP – Political Observatory on Populism – publishes articles and interviews about populism. This blog is open to everyone, but it is also strictly against fascism, racism, and sexism.

POP investigates populism in all its forms: as electoral strategy, ideology, style, political show, mediatized logic, outburst of social anger and frustration, blasts of coprolalia, social heuristic to make sense of the world, and more.

I am Luca Manucci, urban explorer with a PhD in Comparative Politics from the University of Zürich, working on populism, political parties, and media studies, currently investigating (the absence of) populism in Portugal at the University of Lisbon.

I am the author of a book that investigates the links between populism and collective memory, published by Routledge: “Populism and Collective Memory: Comparing Fascist Legacies in Western Europe”.

Unless it is stated otherwise, I am the author of the posts. All the ideas and positions are strictly personal.
