Nationalism, Populism, and Extremism

The trio of nationalism, populism, and political extremism has attracted great attention in recent years from scholars and the public alike, while inspiring concern about the future of democratic governance. Social Influence will publish a special collection on the political psychology of nationalism, populism, and political extremism.

The collection aims for an international scope, presenting papers that focus within a specific national context as well as those that make cross-national comparisons. Papers will address the origins and dynamics of these phenomena and their implications for national and sub-national politics. Research that expands the conventional theoretical frameworks on these topics is especially welcome.

We encourage submissions on the following topics:

  • Tolerance of, and participation in, extreme or exclusionary forms of political behavior
  • Attitudes toward outsider groups targeted by contemporary populist and extremist ideology, such as immigrants or Muslim minorities
  • The positive and negative faces of national attachment
  • The appeal of populist, nationalistic, and extreme political rhetoric.
  • The impact of populism, nationalism, and extremism on political dynamics, such as polarization and faith in democratic procedures and principles.
  • Empathy, solidarity, inclusive tolerance or other similar topics that expand the conventional theoretical frameworks in the study of intolerance and extremism.

Submission Instructions

All enquires about this call for papers should be directed to Prof. Thomas Nelson, Prof. Elisabeth Ivarsflaten or Prof. Ilja van Beest (Chief Editor).

All articles endorsed for publication will be published on a rolling basis.
