Robert Vallerand

Senior Research Affiliate

Robert Vallerand is a Professor at the Université du Québec à Montreal.

His work is on motivational processes. His interest lies in the study of passion for a cause and how it may lead people to use violence in the process of reaching the cause they are promoting (see Rip et al., 2012). Such research sheds light on some of the psychological processes involved in radicalization and provides some directions in order to prevent its spreading across Canada.
