    This background paper aims to unpack the meaning of populism by drawing from existing literature on the concept and come out with a working definition that underpins the rest of the brief. Following the brief conceptual overviews, the paper will broadly review the rise of right-wing populism in Europe and analyse the key economic, socio-cultural and political reasons for this trend. Subsequently, this paper will briefly review a selection of European countries where right wing parties have gained a foothold in parliaments before concluding on the outlook of right-wing populism in Europe.
