Title: Populism in France. Historical and actual development
Democracies around the world are under massive pressure from populist parties or politicians (see, e.g., Stockemer 2019, Muno and Pfeiffer 2021). Larry Diamond (2022) sees democracy imperiled, and french historian Pierre Rosanvallon (2020) even considers the 21st century as the "century of populism". Due to this global development, populism has become one of the most used and most discussed concepts in the past two decades, not only in political science. Politicians, governments, actions, strategies, or discourses are often called “populist”, without a clear conceptual embedding.
