Abstract
With the recent global economic downturn there has been concern that economic hardship may expose people to stressors that will act in concert with psychological processes to increase the likelihood of an individual’s radicalization. This literature review examines the evidence that has been gathered from empirical studies to understand the relationships between radicalization, psychological processes, and the national economic climate.
