National-Popular Narratives in Left-wing Populist Movements : A Comparative Approach of Podemos’ ‘Plurinational Hypothesis’ and La France insoumise’s Republican Conception of the Homeland

National-Popular Narratives in Left-wing Populist Movements : A Comparative Approach of Podemos’ ‘Plurinational Hypothesis’ and La France insoumise’s Republican Conception of the Homeland

Invitée : Laura Chazel (Gouvernance)

 

Laura viendra discuter d'un article en cours d'écriture. "The Great Recession (2007-2009) has created a breeding ground allowing the emergence of new left-wing movements in Europe, among which are Podemos and La France insoumise (LFI). These two movements adopted a populist strategy, inspired by the work of Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe. They developed a national-popular narrative, closely associating the category of the ‘people’ to the concept of ‘homeland’. The aim of this paper is to analyze to what extent the adoption of this narrative represents an ideological and strategic turning point regarding the French and Spanish far-left tradition. This work is the result of several months of qualitative surveys : Participant observation during the electoral campaigns (2015, 2016, 2017, 2019) and interviews (with members and leaders of these movements) were made."
