In this podcast Dr. Matthias Quent, author of "Deutschland Rechts Aussen" and Dr. André Krouwel, Lecturer of Comparative Political Science at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam and founder of 'Kieskompas' discuss the AfD, economic precarity and populism in Europe with our moderator and Senior Research Fellow, Rem Korteweg.

In September 2019, the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) obtained its best-ever result in state elections. What is really driving the far-right surge in Germany?
