In the current conjuncture, populism describes the disruption of the definition of, and connection between, democracy, law and rights. It represents the challenge to both the existing forms of political representation of the people and to the wider juridico-political framework or institutions of democracy. In contrast to predominantly political analyses of this populist phenomenon, which have rendered the relationship of populism to positive law peripheral, the focus will upon a juridico-political analysis of populism. The analysis will concentrate upon the central aspects of the relationship between populism and positive law (Law and Morality; Law and Rights and Law and Violence).
