Does differentiation in the European Union (EU) have a geographical dimension? This has been suggested in parts of literature on EU crises and differentiation in the EU. Europe is often divided into three geographical parts: North, South and East. The article focuses on a particular crisis in the EU, the EU populist crisis. Using Denmark as a case study, we ask whether populism exist in the Nordic countries, in which form, and whether the Nordic countries may be seen as a specific geographical area in this field compared to East, South and maybe even North Europe. Finally, the link between the growing distance between metropolitan big cities and small cities in rural areas, and EU crisis solving is drawn.
