Abstract

Research on populism spans disciplines, theoretical frameworks, and methodologies. As interest in the study of populism rises, social psychology scholars strive to understand (social) psychological factors associated with it. The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the unique yet complementary role of social psychology in understanding - and possibly tackling - populism. The papers comprising this Special Issue offer an in-depth, comprehensive study of the topic, while including theoretical and methodological approaches to move the research in this field forward. Taken together, the papers provide insights of interest to academics, researchers, as well as policy makers and educators.
