Global Politics, political landscape, international dimensions


In recent years, the global political landscape has witnessed a notable surge in populism, a political phenomenon characterized by a strong appeal to the concerns and sentiments of the general population. This paper explores the multifaceted dimensions of the rise of populism and its consequential impact on global politics. The study delves into the origins and drivers of populist movements, examining the socio-economic, cultural, and political factors that have fueled their ascent. The first section of the paper provides a comprehensive analysis of the historical context and evolution of populism, tracing its roots from the early 20th century to the contemporary political landscape. By examining case studies from various regions, the research seeks to identify common patterns and distinctive features of populist movements, shedding light on the diverse manifestations of populism across different cultural and political contexts. The second section of the paper investigates the impact of populism on domestic politics within individual nations. It examines how populist leaders and parties have reshaped political agendas, altered policy priorities, and challenged established political institutions. The study also explores the consequences of populist governance on democratic norms, institutions, and the rule of law.
