New Call: "Research on Polarization" / Statistics, Politics and Policy (De Gruyter, Germany)

The phenomenon of political polarization is emerging as one of the most pressing global problems of the coming decade. It has recently received particular attention in academia, the media, and politics. The triad of polarization, pandemic and populism is leading to greater political instability, conflict, and social tensions on a global scale. Polarization is fueled by the fact that the pandemic and its countermeasures are disproportionally affecting poorer citizens and their livelihood. Polarization has detrimental effects on society, politics and economic interactions on almost all levels.
