Allard is broadly interested in the question how group membership influences our thinking (cognition), feeling (affect and emotions) and doing (behaviour). His research includes topics such as development of intergroup prejudice and stereotyping, discrimination, acculturation, antecedents and consequences of hate-crime, and psychological processes involved in radicalization and terrorism. In addition, Allard is interested in developing interventions (i.e., countering discrimination) and how to best show what works and and what not (evidence-based evaluation).
