Full Video of the Discussion

Watch the full video (above) of the discussion on the Global Rise of Populism across the world (Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Turkey, UK, US, Asia), where Bruce Stokes shares findings from Pew Research Center’s surveys on public attitudes behind this populist backlash.

The surveys explore the reasons behind voters’ growing distrust of elites, including perceptions about ‘well-being’, ‘global importance’, ‘inequality’, ‘immigration’, ‘terrorism’, ‘crime’, ‘economic growth’, and more.

Stokes is the Director of Global Economic Attitudes at Pew, a US-based fact tank that has conducted surveys in 85 countries since 2002, including in India. The discussion was organised in collaboration with JustJobs Network.
