LAUNCH Study on right-wing populism and climate policy in Europe

In a current study adelphi is investigating how right-wing populist parties in Europe behave in the field of climate change. Stella Schaller and Alexander Carius from adelphi examine in an explorative study the voices and the weight of the 21 strongest right-wing populist parties in the formulation of European climate policy: How widespread is disinformation on climate change? Does the emergence of right-wing populist parties threaten Europe's position as a pioneer in climate policy?

ABOUT THE REPORT

Right-wing populist parties are already part of the governments of seven EU member states and are expected to make up a quarter of MEPs after the European elections in May 2019.
The dwindling trust of citizens in democratic institutions and in Europe, the re-sorting of party spectrums, the declining influence of traditional popular parties as well as the emergence of multi-party coalitions and minority governments will all make governance increasingly difficult. At the same time, we are experiencing a profound transformation of life, work and mobility: European societies are facing epochal changes through digitalisation, urbanisation and climate change.

Against this backdrop, the authors Stella Schaller and Alexander Carius from the Berlin-based think tank adelphi examine in an explorative study the voices and the weight of right-wing populist parties in the formulation of European climate policy:

• How widespread is disinformation on climate change?
• What arguments and narratives do right-wing populists use for or against climate and energy policy - nationally and multilaterally?
• Does the emergence of right-wing populist parties threaten Europe's position as a pioneer in climate policy?

For this, the authors look at 21 of the strongest right-wing populist parties in Europe and their attitudes to climate research and climate policy. The analysis is based on official electoral programmes, public statements, interviews with party leaders and press releases. The authors also analyse the parties’ voting behaviour in the European Parliament.

We look forward to meeting you in Brussels and discussing with you the future of European climate policy.
