REPRESENT is the Research Centre for the Study of Parties and Democracy. REPRESENT focuses on three key research themes: populism, participation and democracy support.
Throughout 2018, REPRESENT will host a seminar series (alternating between the two universities) and a high-profile conference, ‘Political Parties in the Age of Populism’ (to be held in Birmingham in April 2018).
On 26 April 2018, leading academics, politicians, activists and practitioners will offer up their ‘big idea’ for responding to populism in a series of three-minute pitches, with the audience voting for the winning idea. Join us to debate whether we can – or should – ‘fix’ populism.
