Waseda University and its European partners are eager to seize upon opportunities created by European and Japanese officials to further improve Japanese-European partnerships and cooperation in fields of shared interest. The conference will be a place for those engaged in collaborative research projects at Waseda, ULB and other European institutions to unveil their latest research. The theme of the event is Populism and its Consequences on Political Trust. Has the diffusion of populist messages led to a decay in trust in politics? Is this phenomenon global and applicable – beyond Europe and the US – to Asian countries such as Japan? The Waseda Brussels Conference this year will focus on how the rise of populism has affected the ways in which politics works and citizens perceive politics in the contemporary world. The Conference will bring together experts of academia and government in the study of electoral campaigning, political attitudes and behavior, public opinion surveys and social media data analysis to present and share opinions on this subject.
