Summary "The twin shocks of the Brexit referendum and then Donald Trump have added greater urgency to efforts to understand the effects and trajectory of populism. Although the consequences of these events may be far-reaching in many fields, one important inquiry concerns the impact of populism on human rights and on the international system for their protection. That topic, which has attracted less attention from political scientists, provides the focus for this book"-- Provided by publisher
