Abstract

Despite a growing interest in populism and foreign policy in recent years, two issues still require further investigation: the relationship between populists and foreign policy elites and bureaucracies; and the effect that this interplay has on foreign policy change (FPC). In a multipolar international system char- acterized by flexible and cross-cutting alliances, the study of foreign policy change assumes greater relevance. Recent studies, despite recognizing the importance of international drivers, have focused on the domestic structural factors that foster, or hinder, change. Within this framework, FPBs are thought to support continuity. However, the emergence of populism has challenged the prominence of precisely these FPBs.
