Democracies are in decline. Populists are on the march. How can liberal democracies fend off the populist challenge? 

 

The answer is 'political entrepreneurship': entrepreneurially-minded citizens who found innovative political start-ups with entrepreneurial methods.

Political start-ups such as En Marche in France, Ciudadanos in Spain, Progresivne in Slovakia or NEOS in Austria are aiming to disrupt political markets in order to reinvent 21st century politics the entrepreneurial way.

Managing Partner of the Innovation in Politics Institute, Josef Lentsch visits the RSA to tell their story, and show how they are taking on the populists by driving positive political change.

Their opponents in the race to reinvent our democracies are the populist and extremist movements on the left and right - but also the traditional parties in the political centre that have started to adopt the populist agenda.

Building on the unique insights, rich examples and personal stories of centrist political entrepreneurs, Lentsch shows how political entrepreneurs can produce positive political change.
