Description

If 2016 was the year that populist politics took many by surprise in the U.K., the Philippines and the U.S., 2017 has so far been the year when populist politics is significant but not electorally successful. In this talk Dr Fiona Barker and Dr Kate McMillan of the Political Science and International Relations Programme at Victoria University look at how populisms of the left and the right manifested in the 2017 French Presidential election campaign, and discuss the emergence of populism in the 2017 New Zealand General Election campaign.

Dr Fiona Barker is Senior Lecturer in Comparative Politics at Victoria University of Wellington. Her research spans the comparative politics of immigration, nationalism, political participation and representation. Recent publications examined sub-state nationalism and migration in Europe and Canada, and immigrant voting in New Zealand, while her current research studies patterns of (ethnic) diversification of parliaments in Europe and New Zealand.

Dr Kate McMillan is Senior Lecturer in Politics at Victoria University of Wellington. She has two main research focuses: immigration and citizenship politics, and the relationship between media and power in New Zealand. Recent publications have looked at non-citizen voting in New Zealand, people movements from ASEAN countries to New Zealand, and media coverage of the 2014 election campaign
