Challenging populism: how the anti-corruption coalition should respond to a world of Trump and Brexit

The election of Donald Trump as US President is only the most striking example a populist wave that swept mainstream politics and established democracies in 2016. The ascendancy of populist and nationalist elements presents a number of challenges to the anti-corruption movement. Firstly, these elements cloak themselves in anti-corruption language, indiscriminately targeting ‘corrupt elites’. Secondly, populist discourse often sets itself against institutions and values – such as the rule of law – that are necessary defenses against corruption. Once in power, they systematically dismantle these institutions.

How should the anti-corruption movement respond? What kind of coalitions can we build today and who can be the actors? How can we prevent legitimate anti-corruption discourse and goals from being debased?
