Jan-Werner Mueller’s lecture “After Populism” addresses the question of how best to understand populism and also what structural changes in modern democracies might facilitate its emergence. 

Mueller considers how professional politicians and citizens at large should deal with the challenge of populism, specifically referencing Max’s Weber thoughts on politics ethics.  Finally, Mueller makes some suggestions on how the structural problems associated with contemporary democracies might be addressed.
