“What do we (not) know about demand-side populism? A systematic literature review on populist attitudes”

Research on populist attitudes has bloomed in recent years, especially among political science and communication scholars.

This systematic literature review considers all articles stored in the Web of Science and published in English that refer to populist attitudes, without time restrictions (N = 138).
