For a long time I have been wondering whether there is a specific concept given to the phenomenon that occurs when a fraction of local populations who are at the receiving end of sanctions or any other form of collective punishment by a foreign power (e.g. US economic sanctions and negative advertisement on Iran) turn against their own local government or political system and embrace the power sanctioning them, rather than turning against the power which is punishing them directly (e.g. the oppositions to governments in Russia, Iran, China, etc.)? Is there any theory developed dealing with this social phenomenon and/or with maximizing such an effect?
I'm not interested to know whether or why someone would agree or try to justify the collective punishment of those populations or why such phenomenon takes place within sectors of the sanctioned populations. I'm just interested to know if the mechanism has been named or studied and, if that's the case, what is the name and where to find serious literature studying the phenomenon.
