Representative decision making: Constituency constraints on collective action
Druckman, Daniel and Çelik, Ayşe Betül and Beriker, Nimet and Çuhadar Gürkaynak, Esra (2010) Representative decision making: Constituency constraints on collective action. In: Galluccio, Mauro and Aquilar, F., (eds.) Psychological and Political Strategies for Peace Negotiation: A Cognitive Approach. Springer, New York. (Accepted/In Press)
This chapter focuses on the role of group and national identity in various types of collective actions. It features the decision to take action and asks about factors that influence that decision. Thus, our perspective is from the standpoint of the decision-maker who usually represents a collectivity (group, organization, nation). The interest is less about those decision-makers’ own identities and attachments than about various drivers and constraints on their decisions to act.
