Populism of Authority and Opposition as Part of the Election Campaign of the President of Russian Federaion 2016-18

2019
This paper is devoted to the study of the phenomenon of populism in a regime of limited pluralism. The author shows different approaches to the interpretation of the concept of populism and considers populism as a thin ideology. The thesis describes the specifics of populism in democratic and hybrid political regimes. Summarizing the scientific works, the author reveals the main signs of populism. Using the case of the presidential elections held in Russia in 2018, the author operationalizes the signs of populism, applying them to public speeches of candidates for the presidency of Russia. This approach makes it possible to identify similarities and differences in the use of elements of populist discourse by different candidates.
