Right-wing Populism and the European Union

Somdeep Sen [1]

155 216

Since its inception the European Union has transformed itself from a mere economic partnership
to a regional cooperation, supposedly, embodying laws and values ‘universally’ accepted as
‘good’. This very character has encouraged the EU to pursue the role of a global actor that not
only personifies this ‘value-system’ but also strives at disseminating them into the rest of the
world. But, over the years the rise of right-wing populism throughout Europe has threatened to
challenge some of the core orientating aspects of this ‘value-system’. While electoral victories
have demonstrated their ability to impact the character of the EU within its boundaries, this study
wonders what impact the rise of the right-wing populism could have on the European Union as a
global actor.


Key words: Far-right, Right wing populism, European Union, Global Actor, Foreign Policy
