This weekend Brazilians will go to the polls to elect a new president. #Brazil is fifth biggest country in the world, in terms of population, and symptomatic of a remarkable authoritarian turn in the world's biggest states. #thread
1. China is the biggest country and only non-democracy in top-5. But even here General Secretary Xi Jinping has taken the country in a (even) more authoritarian and nationalist direction.
2. India, the world's largest democracy, has been governed by PM Narendra Modi and his radical right BJP-led coalition since 2014. MOstly ignored by international media, India has seen sharp rise of radical and sometimes violent Hindutva activism.

Dept of “Justice” [background] important?

I have been arguing for a long time that the EU, and particularly the EPP, should stand up to Viktor Orbán, but I feel nevertheless conflicted on triggering #Article7 - let me explain. #Thread…
1. Although triggering Article 7 does not mean kicking Hungary out of EU (more below), it is starting with the "nuclear option".
2. Orbán and Fidesz have been creating an "illiberal state" since regaining power in 2010. That is 8 years of undermining checks and balances, recreating institutions and filling them with cronies, and creating a kleptocracy on Russian model.

Idée reçue : "la durée de vie d'un piéton sur la bande d'arrêt d'urgence c'est 20 minutes" (toujours "selon des études", ou "selon des estimations". C'est faux. Archi-faux, même. Thread. #Autoroute #Piétons 1/10
Chiffres approximatifs : le nombre total annuel de tués sur les routes, c'est 3500. Sur autoroute : 200 personnes. Le nombre de piétons tués sur l'autoroute : 25 par an. #Autoroute #Piétons 2/10
Sur ces 25 piétons tués sur l'autoroute, 17 sont tués sur les voies de circulation. 8 le sont sur la bande d'arrêt d'urgence. #Autoroute #Piétons 3/10

Non loin de Montpellier, une femme à l'air mystérieux attend son tram face aux étangs. Ce matin de vacances, elle s'est levée à l'aube. Elle regarde l'avenir. Elle a rendez-vous avec son destin.
Aussi vaillante que Kirikou après une nuit de 5 heures, arborant un air de mystère et une paire de tongs, elle se dirige vers le colosse de béton qui se dresse, impitoyable, devant elle : le Corum. Dans son esprit, cette citation d'un célèbre poète post-moderniste : "Hodor."
Son mystère et elle-même se rendent tous deux au plus gros colloque de biologie évolutive de l'univers, Evolution 2018. #evol2018

Faire de l’investigation une variable d’ajustement économique à France Télé ? Il y a plusieurs choses que je ne comprends pas. Si vous avez des réponses, je suis preneur. Je déroule ⬇️
Pour moi, cette stratégie va à l’encontre d’une tendance qui se dégage dans les médias aujourd’hui : mettre plus de moyens pour enquêter et raconter le monde d’aujourd’hui.
C’est ce que le lecteur attend, c’est ce qui permet à un média d’exister dans un flux sans fin où les contenus circulent sans les marques qui les ont publiés.

This is supposed to be defense of one of too many uncritical “human interest” @nytimes pieces on neo-Nazis and other far right people. It shows depth of ignorance among journalists.
1. First and foremost, it shows media’s tendency to think in clichés - the purely evil bad person and the purely good victim.
2. Second, it shows the enduring problem of white privilege in the media, undoubtedly strengthened by whiteness of newsrooms as noted by @jbouie

I think this piece, while more nuanced than "60.000 Neo-Nazis march in Warsaw", still misses many points. #thread…
1. Poland always has had a very strong far right subculture, which is quite diverse, from neo-Nazis, to neo-fascist (Dmowski) to orthodox-Christian nationalists.
2. Because of electoral system and big right-wing umbrella parties far right parties and politicians mainly operated within right-wing parties rather than separately (recent exception: LPR).

Regarding the #Indigo incident: I don't know both sides of the story and I completely condemn any violence for any reason. Having said that, I will use this occasion to talk about one thing that gets to me: our behaviour with customer support staff in India. #thread
I know we live in a time where capitalism is at its peak and we pay a lot of money to get the services we demand on time and in the best possible manner. But I've seen time and again that there's an incredible amount of entitlement in a lot of us because of this.
It's the service industry but it's also run by humans, and yes, sometimes, things go wrong for legit errors, but sometimes, they go wrong because of no reason, and that shouldn't give any of us the right to mistreat the service employees or customer reps.

In past months I’ve criticized high-profile initiatives on populism at Harvard & Stanford. Let me clarify why. #thread
1. I am happy that populism is (finally) taken serious by US mainstream political and social science.
2. Although I wish “populism” was used more carefully and not as short hand for anti-establishment, nativist, or protest politics.

These “Safaris in Trumpland” are no infuriating and borderline racist. #Thread…
1. They are not a way to overcome the gap with “the internal other” but to explain them (away).
2. They often lead to whitewashing nativism, populism and racism and sometimes even adopting it.

With more than 99% of votes counted, this seems to be final result of quite surprising #czechelection -- some reflections #Thread
1. Fragmentation is name of game, even in already fragmented party systems like Czech Republic.
2. From 7 to 9 parties in parliament and only one big party left. Coalitions were already difficult, now even more.

First responses to #nrw17 in #Austria on basis of exit poll results. #thread
1. Just like in first round 2016 presidential elections, FPÖ as only one largely underpolled.
2. This is striking as FPÖ has been polled as radical right party for 30 (!) years.

Excellent backgrounder to this Sunday’s Austrian elections. Some of my thoughts. #thread…
1. Whatever exact outcome, FPÖ coming second or third, “populism” is back st the center of debates on European Politics.
2. Yet, populism (qua populism) is relatively weak with Kurtz and even FPÖ moderated it (at least vis-a-vis Kurtz).

I don't understand why the replacement of #DieLinke by #AfD as the new "Ostpartei" is not one of the major stories of #BTW17 🤔 #Thread
1. Sure, many media have noted that #AfD won almost twice as many votes in East than West and some great articles were written about "revenge of East"…
2. But main story is Merkel lost to AfD because of her "soft" position on refugees. While this is true, there are two important caveats to this story.

As my @guardian piece is only on #AfD here some general thoughts on #BTW17 results in a #Thread
1. There is no doubt that this is Germany's #SchwarzeSonntag (Black Sunday). It was long in coming but it came much harder than expected.
2. #AfD breaking 10 percent is highly significant, as German small parties rarely get double digits!

ALL articles that @EJPRjournal has published on #populism in past 10 years are now temporarily Open Access. #thread…
1. To my surprise and shock, ALL 19 (!) of the 9 articles are male. Every single one of them.
2. This is not by design! The virtual special issue is a collection of ALL articles, not a selection of SOME!
