The Impact of Perceived Relative Deprivation on Populist Attitudes
The project is focused on a psychological mechanism explaining how perceptions of relative deprivation at the group level influence individuals’ positions on scales measuring populist attitudes. It is proposed that the relationship between perceived fraternal deprivation and populist attitudes is mediated by emotions. Emotions can both lead to an increase or decrease of individuals’ positions on populist attitudes. Emotions are captured by emotion profiles. Four experiments are carried out.
