About this web-site

This web-site describes the research and other achievements of Dr. Peter Suedfeld, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia.

This page lists those of Dr. Suedfeld's publications that fit under the general category of political psychology. Some, especially the earlier ones, may only be indirectly related to the specific topic, but they illustrate Suedfeld's gradual progression from more general social psychology to his focus upon more strictly "political" issues. In the more recent publications, Suedfeld's role in the newly developing area of "peace psychology" becomes evident. Links to more information about Dr. Suedfeld and all of his major topics of research appear below.
