Wolkenstein (2019) explain a growth in political parties to overcome fragmentation and exercise collectively to challenge existing structural power.   The rise of populist movements and a decline in social democratic movements may present a new trend in emerging policies developing due to the health and economic crises.  As countries around the globe respond to the crises with strategies representing national strategies in addition to partnering with regional bodies to exercise those strategies, populist movements develop an association of beliefs which potentially broaden new policy models and directives.  The health crisis is an example of countries depending on neighbors for supplies and the facilitation of travel restrictions.  Leaders coordinated these efforts through regional and international organizations and created a system for which populist adherence led to international compliance.  The policies of sharing medical supplies and implementing travel restrictions became an association of international strategies for responding to crisis.  The populist movement of individual countries became globalized and the social reforms of medical guidance became uniform.  In turn, populist movements inherited the ideology of social democracy and the decline of social democracy has been obscured through the reforms necessary to respond to the crisis. 

The division between the liberalism of the populist movements and the reforms of social democracy has an undercurrent by agents able to capitalize from the chaos of crisis.  The progressive view of liberalism from the welfare state and the traditional view of the need of provisions from the welfare state are easily swapped from one country to another.  The progressive view of more state reforms may be counter to the traditional view of free market capitalism.  Consistent in these political ideologies is the opportunity to enhance these divisions to seek power over feuding camps.  One example of the ability to catalyze this dispute is in the presentation of education reforms.   Watson (2020) describes the rise of populism as a spark to division between progressive and traditional educators.   Shin (2017) suggests that inefficiency of the welfare state in education is often an argument against welfare states.  The network of corporations and organizations relying on division to influence governance are accustomed to the enflaming of this debate and capitalize from the division without choosing a side.  Democratic ideals and the protection of national interests rely on cooperation between agents and governments to inform the public of core concepts around debates and resolutions.
