The paper will review a research program on identity and norms that explores the inter-relationship between collective action and social change. We take the opportunity to review the different treatment of collective action from within mainstream social psychology and peace psychology, and then hone in on the question of whether there is anything special (or not) about collective harm-doing: collective action to hurt or kill others. We use this as a springboard to comment on the impact and antecedents of radicalisation, before closing with a discussion of what is missing from the scholarship of collective action in our view.
