    This paper is an essay on populism in contemporary Europe. I want to focus on the paradox of representative European domestic politics and the weakness of the representative politics of the European integration project. The paper is constructed as a think-piece rather than a paper gathering empirical data. In this paper I, therefore, offer a short review of one of the key taxonomies of populism and how it relates to Europe. Following that, I suggest an alternative view of populism in which there are six characteristic features. These six features are then discussed with reference to the three cases of populist mobilization. Finally, I conclude with the argument that instances of populist mobilization in contemporary Europe are limited in their scope of collective impact
