Join Standing Group


The Political Psychology Standing Group brings together colleagues interested in addressing the psychological aspects of politics and facilitates communication among scholars across disciplinary, geographic and political boundaries. This Standing Group gives voice and visibility to the needs of the academics, graduate students and researchers studying the field (political scientists, economists, sociologists, psychologists), supports relevant publications, promotes communication among specialists and organises expert meetings. It also collaborates actively with the International Society of Political Psychology in organising the Political Psychology Summer Academy. The field of Political Psychology dates from the late 1960s. Our members conduct research on pivotal topics such as political socialisation, attitude formation and change, decision heuristics and biases, public opinion, stereotypes, tolerance, radicalism, protests, political cynicism and allienation, to name a few, and teach political psychology courses across universities in Europe, USA, Canada, South America, Australia and the Middle East.
