The current project aims to address the topic of populist vulnerability by exploring perceptions related to politics in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and of the war in Ukraine.
This will be done by measuring the propensity towards accepting and multiplying populist narratives.
The main objectives of the current project are:
1. To conceptualize populist vulnerability, which at the moment is, as such, an unexplored direction of research;
2. To develop an online innovative interactive platform to measure populist vulnerability;
3. To collect important and scientifically relevant data by targeting users from countries that represent the case studies of the project;
4. To identify the main variables and conditions that contribute to accepting and multiplying populist narratives, thus testing the populist vulnerability concept.
