Populism and Backlashes against International Courts

(p.148) Chapter Nine Populism and Backlashes against International Courts
Ideology and International Institutions

Erik Voeten

Princeton University Press

This chapter assesses the rise of populism as an ideological shift that can be orthogonal to the main ideological dimension of contestation. It advances two main points. First, populist leaders have incentives to contest expert-based international institutions that interpret liberal rules when these interpretations interact with preexisting populist mobilization. Moreover, populism offers an ideology to challenge the authority of these institutions. Second, populists are diverse in their positions on the main dimension of contestation, which complicates their ability to form effective multilateral reform coalitions. The chapter then applies the book's conceptual framework to the rise of populism with an empirical application to international courts.

Keywords:   populism, ideological contestation, populist leaders, international institutions, populist mobilization, ideology, multilateral reform coalitions, international courts, liberal rules
