Sharing core norms and values
Sep 30, 2015 | Centre for International Governance Innovation, Anna Klimbovskaia, Jonathan Diab

In addressing the social unrest flowing from populist uprisings, this brief by Anna Klimbovskaia and Jonathan Diab for the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) suggests that governments should adopt effective communication strategies and establish social safety nets to protect their constituencies and involve them in decision-making, thereby increasing public satisfaction and reducing the attractiveness of populist movements. The paper suggests that if governments wish to accommodate foreign and local investors, they must use concession strategies that appease unhappy constituencies, recognising the greater roles now played by populist movements.
