As research on privilege increased in the last two decades, a clear need for a social psychological perspective to examine the topic has emerged. In this special issue of JSI, scholars provide a framework for understanding the psychology of privilege, considering the policy implications of privilege, and imagining the future of privilege studies. The contributors emphasize multidisciplinary approaches, mixed methods, and the benefits of intersectional theory for studying privilege.
