ERA-NET: Threat, identity, and dissent: Understanding and addressing political polarization in European democracies

Project Details


This project aims to determine how identities and threat combine to generate multiple polarized attitudes, and compares subpopulations of belief systems across countries and over time. Correlational class analysis and experiments that test causal effects of identities and threats are used to further explore this and help to not only understand, but to also identify solutions to overcome polarization by investigating the role of democratic innovations.
