Our hub is currently composed of three nationally funded research projects that explore populism, polarisation and affects from several angles. They focus on political parties and mainstreaming of populist discourses (MAPO), role of the media and the transforming hegemonic processes (WhiKnow), the physical and online landscapes and history building (NTUS), and (de)radicalisation also in the urban participatory and local democracy context (D.Rad).
