Özet: This talk is based on one of my recently published projects in collaboration with distinguished scholars including Lerna Yanık, Umut Korkut and İlke Civelekoğlu. It basically addresses the link between populism and foreign policy making by examining the rhetoric of two populist leaders-Turkey’s Erdoğan and Hungary’s Orban. We argue that when populists bring populism into foreign policy, they do so by contesting the “corrupt elites” of the international order and, simultaneously, attempt to create the “pure people” transnationally. With its comparative approach, we aim at understanding transnational populism as a way of political communication with both domestic and international audience. Vertical stratification mechanisms that stem from the antagonistic binaries inherent to populism provide populist leaders with the necessary superiority and inferiority labels allowing them to discursively renegotiate hierarchies in the international system to modify the existing ones or to create new ones.
