Webinar Series: Analysis of Social Power and Types of Coercion, Sonia Goltz, September 2023

The item image was not found.

Over time, coercion, meaning intentionally leveraging one’s power to influence someone to do something they don’t want to do primarily for the powerholder’s benefit which usually also harms the target, has become subtler, due to social trends and new technologies. This webinar paper combines the concepts of negative and positive freedom from philosophy and the three-term (A-B-C) contingency in behavior analysis to suggest extensions of definitions of coercion given this trend, resulting in a taxonomy of four coercion types. This taxonomy suggests that current coercion definitions miss identifying interference by powerholders that impacts positive freedom, particularly in the form of false paternalism and malign neglect.
