POPREBEL project: Foresight scenarios

Vello Pettai will be in charge of developing a foresight dimension for the POPREBEL programme, putting together a series of analytical scenarios based on the collected input from the other WPs and their studies of populism in Eastern Europe. The scenarios will be sensitive to different forms of the populist phenomenon, and interrelate them to different societal, technological, political and economic evolutions (drivers) that may come to pass. The WP will engage three specific target groups – scholars, policy-makers and members of the public – in a structured discussion of these scenarios.
