Publication on the Brandt Report in an Age of Populism

Together with Prof. Solveig Richter, University of Leipzig, and Raphael Robiatti, Brandt School, we have edited a publication supported by the Bundeskanzler-Willy-Brandt-Stiftung. We use the 40th anniversary of the so-called Brandt Report as a moment to look at the legacy of the report on policymaking.

I also wrote a short blog post here on some of the conclusions. Apart from the substantive questions about how well the Brandt Report has aged over time, I find it fascinating to observe how little, still, we know about the effects of populism on policymaking. The literature seems much stronger on identifying a populist rhetorical style.
