New POPBACK Policy Fellows announced

25 May 2021


We are delighted to announce the names of the successful applicants to the POPBACK Policy Fellowship Programme

POPBACK is an academic consortium carrying out research to inform strategies to increase democratic resilience by studying the mechanisms that “exclusionary populist” movements use to increase their power by undermining the rule of law and eroding the divide between the public and private domains in the areas of law, the economy, and the media. The project also seeks to identify the “coping strategies” societal actors use when faced with exclusionary populism.

We look forward to welcoming the following newly elected Fellows to Cambridge this year:

Tija Jakič, Member of the Programme Committee and Field Coordinator, Research Institute 8th of March (Inštitut 8. Marec), Ljubljana, Slovenia

Dr Daniela Kraus, General Secretary, Presseclub Concordia, Vienna, Austria
