The recent disenchantment of voters with existing political institutions is often depicted as resulting from a retrenching welfare state and growing economic inequalities. If this explanation is correct then it is striking that the policies enacted by so-called “populist” governments can hardly be described as social democratic. In fact, around the world social democratic parties are in a deep crisis. In the panel, we will discuss these topics and ask how those who are sympathetic to a strong welfare state should respond.
