Counterpoint produces briefing on ‘populist rhetoric’ of UKIP

Counterpoint’s series of briefings examines the rhetoric of populist politicians in the European Parliament. They analyse exchanges between populists and their fellow MEPs and give recommendations for how to respond effectively to their rhetoric. The briefings are for politicians and campaigners who are looking to build a response to populist parties both inside and outside  Parliament.  Building on extensive research on populist parties, Counterpoint hopes that this series can provide a useful advocacy tool for countering populism.


The briefing on the rhetoric of UKIP is the latest in Counterpoint’s series on the rhetoric of populist parties in Europe, ahead of the European Parliament elections.
