 Brief description of your activity focus
Identity and Radicalization

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The primary focus of Professor Guillem Feixas’ research has been to study the role of the construction of self and
others in the areas of clinical and health psychology. To this aim, personal construct and self-regulation theories
have been important sources of inspiration for implementation, both in research and in practice. We offer our
expertise together with another researcher, Professor David A. Winter, from the University of Hertfordshire (UH),
who is an experienced clinical psychologist and Programme Director of the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. He
has applied personal construct psychology in National Health Service settings for many years, and also in the fields
of criminal and forensic psychology, publishing extensively in these areas.

The study of psychological factors leading to radicalised thoughts and behaviours has antecedents. Within social
psychology, factors such as socio-cognitive dynamics, personal meanings, social influence and identity
crisis/transformation have already been proposed as potential determinants of extremism and radicalisation.
Moreover, the increase in research on terrorism since 2001 allowed the development of more comprehensive
approaches, for instance Borum’s (2014) mindset model, which suggests the interplay of sociocultural and
psychological processes driving to radicalisation. To our opinion, both Borum’s mindset model and Hogg’s
uncertainty identity theory exhibit are highly compatible between them and with personal construct theory. In
fact, several references to identity uncertainty can be observed in the latest version of the comprehensive mindset
approach, being a major influence at several levels (i.e., worldview, psychological vulnerabilities and
propensities). Therefore, these perspectives may be taken into account in a complementary manner to set a
comprehensive starting point to study radicalisation processes.

We offer our expertise and background in psychological studies to lead (or collaborate in) a work package aimed
to study and assess socio-cognitive dynamics, personal meanings and identity of individuals in the process of
radicalisation. Following the state-of-the-art in this area, research could be implemented through qualitative and
mixed methods, mainly narrative analyses and semi-structured interviews such as the Repertory Grid Technique, in
which both Profs. Feixas and Winter are experts.
