In response to the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, SPARQ Research Scientist Sarah Lyons-Padilla and University of Maryland Professor of Psychology Michele Gelfand co-authored a fact sheet for the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues on strategies for preventing homegrown radicalization. Their policy suggestions come from their recent work on how marginalization and exclusion of Muslim immigrants can produce psychological conditions that increase the appeal of radical groups like ISIS.
