The Social Psychology of Gullibility

22nd Sydney Symposium of Social Psychology

27-31 July, 2020, Visegrad, Hungary

Convened by
Joseph P. Forgas, Bill Crano and Klaus Fiedler

The conference seeks to bring together researchers who are interested in understanding what social psychology can contribute to our understanding of the recent rise of populist political movements in a number of countries. We hope to invite researchers working in any area of social psychology that can contribute to our understanding political behavior.

We believe that most substantive areas of social psychology are highly relevant to understanding the psychological processes underlying populism, including research on attitudes and values, evolutionary influences, social cognition, social influence, social identity, social motivation, political psychology, etc. As always the topic is broadly defined and we are interested in contributions from a wide variety of empirical and theoretical backgrounds that can contribute to our understanding of the role of social psychological processes in the spread of populism.
