Understanding the headlines
How and why people behave the way they do is always my central point. With this psychological mindset, I unravel the relations between Western- and Middle Eastern countries.
My goal is to make complexity understandable for everyone and to let people think critically about things they have taken for granted.
I want everyone to make sense about what they see and read in the news. And as a consequence, feel less threatened and more empowered.

Terrorism and Manipulation
Terrorism –or the threat of terrorism- has an impact on the collective behaviour of a society. The systematic and deliberate violence of terrorism causes among others fear, avoidance and stereotyping. How does terrorism shape a society and how can a society deal with this?
Iran is for many one of the most intriguing countries in the Middle East. Frequently part of the news but little understood, still interesting to so many. Underneath the Islamic politics, there’s a vibrant society that’s little visible from the outside. What are the main things to know?
"Taking you through a step-by-step approach, political psychologist Carlies Mol unravels the moments occurring in the minds of those who commit extremist of terrorist acts. Proceeding in an analytical way, she presents the psychological path of their behaviour, which also reveals the possible steps to counter such dangerous outcomes. Her presentation is thorough, factual and well-researched. "
“We organized a seminar with our student association in November 2018. The theme of the day was ‘Manipulation’ and we invited several professionals to speak at our seminar. The day consisted of some lectures and workshops. Carlies was one of those speakers for our workshops. She gave a very interesting workshop about Terrorism and how it affects us in our daily lives. She spoke about different perspectives and gave us some interesting discussion points. It was a very interactive workshop and really an eye-opener. ”
