Abstract

Incidents of backlash against affirmative action policies have increased in many politically and socially divided societies, making understanding backlash important. While not specifically an issue of political ideology, backlash incidents can limit or reverse equity efforts. Scholarship have thus far remained unfocused, with extant research spanning disciplines, diverging in core assumptions and research interests. This results in an incomplete understanding of affirmative action backlash and hindered solution creation. This paper, therefore, maps backlash towards affirmative action policies in literature, with an intent of understanding the concept to help build a foundation for future work.
