So, what is populism?1 Under this innocuous formulation, breaking with the
current conceptual jumble, I herein understand and define populism simply as
democratic illiberalism (also see Pappas 2014: 2–5). This conceptualization has
important ontological and methodological advantages: it provides us with a truly
minimal definition for identifying our object;2 it clearly points to the exact opposite
of populism; and it proposes a hierarchical (per genus et differentiam) mode of

adopted neoliberal policies. Only if populism is something more than socio-
economics is this ...

ambivalent. The literal translation from its Latin roots 'populus' is 'the people',
which exhibits a clear link with the democratic idea. According to Taggart (2000,
