Abstract

The global wave of ethno-nativist populism poses a challenge to ecclesial self-understanding. Populist movements often legitimize their political projects by appealing to a religious heritage that is exclusively linked to a perceived ethnic and national purity and superiority. Thus, they evoke the need for a renewed reflection on the identity of the church. What ecclesiological resources may be mobilized against the temptation and threat of ethno-nativist populism? Taking his cue from Paul Ricoeur’s hermeneutics of the self, Sturla J. Stålsett argues for a self-understanding of the church that presupposes the constitutive presence of otherness. Understanding the church as Christ’s body implies that it receives its identity from someone exterior to itself, from the wholly other. The biblical testimony about Jesus of Nazareth, in turn, emphasizes his historical self-identification with marginalized ‘others,’ as liberationist christologies point out. Stålsett argues that ecclesial resistance to the politico-religious agenda of ethno-nativist populism should emerge from understanding the church as a community that comes into being through incorporating, without assimilating, excluded others. However, this understanding makes more acute the ecclesiological dilemma of how churches may critically respond to ethno-nativist practices of populism without excluding people who hold populist views.

This volume focuses on the recent challenge posed by right-wing populism to democratic consolidation in Europe and particularly explores the legal dimensions of this challenge. Part One attempts to define political populism and explains why it poses a challenge to democratic political order in Europe. Part Two examines the theoretical underpinnings of the populist challenge to human rights and democracy in Europe. Part Three applies this theory to concrete examples and considers case studies including an old EU Member State, two newer EU Member States and a non-EU Member State party to the ECHR. The aim is to examin the consequences of the present populist challenge in Europe that has been marked with excessively nationalist policies in some states party to the ECHR. It is explored how the Convention rights have been undermined, but also what the limitations are of the ECHR acting as a safety-net for democratic consolidation in Europe.

democratic regression is experienced. Although the ECtHR’s case law provides for some important judicial clarifications on the link between human rights and democracy, the populist challenge makes the balancing exercise between human rights and democratic standards increasingly difficult. Indeed, human
