Examining the Ideological Roots of System-Challenging and System-Supporting Collective Action: A System Justification Theory Perspective

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Research on collective action shows that identity, shared grievances, and group efficacy motivate social protest. Although insightful, this work often overlooks the inhibiting—and potentially facilitating—effects of ideology on collective action support. We address these oversights by taking a system justification theory perspective and arguing that collective action support is ultimately based in ideology. Accordingly, we use nationally representative data to show that system justification motivation has a negative indirect effect on system-challenging collective action via reductions in group identification, perceptions of injustice, and resultant group- and system-based anger for a low-status group (N = 2,328), but positive indirect effects via the same mechanisms for a high-status group (N = 13,819). Conversely, system justification motivation is positively associated with system-supporting collective action for both groups. These results provide the first integration of ideology into models of collective action to explain when ideology will—and will not—promote social change.
