The objective of this conference titled “The impact of populism on the EU polity and policies“, was to focus on the impact of populism, not on its form or success. The conference focused on three substantive areas. First, what has the impact of populism been on the dynamic of European integration and on the EU as a polity? Second, what has the impact been of populist and authoritarian governments on the rule of law in Europe? Third, how can the EU deliver societal security at a time when populists exploit fears of the ‘other’?
