Dr. Alexander Saeri
BPsySc (Hons I), PhD
Sessional Course Coordinator and Research Assistant
Saeri, A. K., Iyer, A., & Louis, W. R. (in press). Right-Wing Authoritarianism and Social Dominance Orientation predict outsiders’ responses to an external group conflict: implications for identification, anger, and collective action. Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy. doi: 10.1111/asap.12081 [Journal] [Full PDF]
In this paper, I demonstrate the role that pre-existing political ideologies take in shaping uninvolved outsiders’ appraisals of conflict between social groups . The findings imply that social movements may be most effective in recruiting outsiders to their cause when they emphasise a shared political ideology, rather than focusing solely on the specific contested issue.
