"Populism" evokes different meanings for different people, but most if not all of us would agree that it brings a range of real-world issues.

These span (to name but a few) nationalistic backlashes against globalization, including global mobility of goods and labor; access to decent work, and economic inclusion vs. exclusion; trust vs. mistrust across conventional politics and in political leader(ship); unity vs. division within and across social, class and party lines; challenges of racism, sexism, ageism, patriotism, and nationalism vs. internationalism.

Such issues, and more, affect millions of people in and across the world today, and tomorrow.

They are thereby of central concerns for International Perspectives in Psychology: Research, Practice, Consultation, the official journal of APA Division 52 (International Psychology), whose ambit and ethos is precisely human experiences, and the role that psychology can (and must) play in improving the lives of people around the world.
