What is Political Psychology? Our Team Current Research Publications Colloquia PPRG in the News How to Join PPRG

Political Psychology Research Group

The Political Psychology Research Group (PPRG) continues a long tradition of research in political psychology at Stanford University. It strives to be a network of scholars in the Stanford community and to build new connections with other scholars in the field and anyone concerned with the application of scientific knowledge on political psychology. Professors, visiting scholars, PhD candidates, and undergraduate research assistants collaborate in our lab to publish research about a variety of topics including attitude formation, change, and effects, on the psychology of political behavior, survey research methods, and public opinion on the environment and climate change.

The PPRG lab is located at Stanford University in McClatchy Hall, Department of Communication, Room 300N.
