The Psychology of Intergroup Relations

when 19 August 2017 - 25 August 2017
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 250

The course focuses on the social psychological analysis of intergroup relations, from the emergence of intergroup conflicts to their resolution, using examples from every day experiences of stereotyping to severe conflicts around the world. We discuss the motivational processes of intergroup distinction, the role of identity and emotions, the function of prejudice and its consequences for target groups. We look at the ways in which social psychology addressed intergroup conflicts and prejudice, and established the structural conditions of engagement in collective action.
