Forschungsinteresse

Meine Arbeit widmet sich der Theorie und Methodologie der Extremismus- und Terrorismusforschung und dem Phänomen des politisch abweichenden Verhaltens. Spezieller Fokus meines Forschungsinteresses ist die Ideologie, ihre Überlebensstrategien, ihre Funktionen und Determinationen, sowie ihre Effekte auf Gruppen und Gesellschaft. Im Zentrum meiner Forschungen stehen Fragen aus den Feldern der Sozial-Psychologie, Soziologie und Politikwissenschaft.

Research Interests

With my research interest in theory and methodology of Extremism/Terrorism, I aim to advance the knowledge of social processes of political deviant behavior. I am especially focused on Ideology, its strategies of survival, its functions and determinations in the ideology-customer, as well as effects of ideology on groups and society. Particularly, I pay attention to the field of social-psychology, sociology and political science within my research on political extremism.
