Compétences

Individual-authority relationship

My research is mainly concerned with individual-authority relationship, intergroup relations, and contextual effects. My early work was focused on obedience and disobedience dynamics vis-à-vis the authority. Together with Dr. Stefano Passini, I developed the concept of prosocial disobedience as a social resource. The basic idea is that people is that, whereas people may disobey the authority with analogous behaviours, there may be different psychological underpinning to disobedience which may lead to very different aims and results. In particular prosocial disobedience is defined as a type of disobedience addressed to accomplishing social change, and such a change does not represent a benefit for only one or few social groups, but it is addressed to society as a whole, without excluding any outgroup. Several studies I conducted showed that psychological processes of inclusion (e.g., moral inclusion and inclusive self categorization) are associated with and predictive of prosocial disobedience. I also showed as such type of disobedience is linked to the enhancement of democracy at the individual and societal levels.

Contextual effects

More recently, I turned to the issue of contextual factors influencing individual perception and attitudes. Here the focus is on collective experience and the idea that people is influence by the context were they live. This approach is complementary to the previous one, where we investigated the way individual may influence the social context. In the framework of the contextual effects, I studied reaction to collective vulnerability experiences, such as civil conflicts and collective economic deprivation. The hypothesis here is that when risks are shared «equally» within a given community or context, the existence of a collective vulnerability (common destiny), leads the member of community to reinforce social norms and social resources.

Statistical methods

Another interest of mine is statistics and methods. The research conducted so far focuses on several aspects of multilevel modelling, such as multilevel structural equation modelling, multilevel mixture models, multilevel longitudinal models. Far from being a pure methodologist, I believe in the interdisciplinary approach, which translate also in the use of statistical models applied in other human science(e.g., political science, economics and econometrics, sociology) and natural science (e.g., geography, biology).
