Introduction
My general research interests are oriented toward political psychology and the social managing of inter-ethnic issues. I am currently studying the dynamic between normative and structural factors (majority versus minority status) and individuals’ inter-ethnic relations, attitudes and political behaviours.

Article
What role does intergroup contact play in promoting support for social change toward greater social equality? Drawing on the needs-based model of reconciliation, we theorized that when inequality between groups is perceived as illegitimate, disadvantaged group members will experience a need for empowerment and advantaged group members a need for ac...
Article
Full-text available
Drawing on studies showing that arguments about the nature of intergroup prejudice allow members of privileged groups to ‘perform’ a positive social identity, the present study explores how arguments about the nature of prejudice are produced by targets of prejudice in order to consolidate or challenge their own social identity. We conducted interv...

Article
A large body of research has demonstrated that intergroup contact is a powerful tool for reducing prejudice among majority group members. Yet, research among minority group members has revealed a more complex picture. The present contribution advances recent research on sedative effects of intergroup contact on support for ethnic activism, by inves...

Article
Full-text available
This article studies the interactional functions of racism discourse in mobilizing support for right-wing populism. The analysis focuses on the controversy surrounding UKIP’s “Breaking Point” poster campaign which launched days before the historic British EU referendum. We focus on the development of “tripolar relations” between the UKIP party lead...
Article
Full-text available
Positive intergroup contact with socially and economically advantaged national majorities has been shown to reduce ethnic identification among minorities, thereby undermining ethnic minority activism. This finding implies that ethnic identity is the relevant social identity driving ethnic minorities’ struggle for equality. We argue that the study o...
Article
Full-text available
Intergroup contact scholars have recently called for analyzing the effects of negative intergroup contact. In response to this call, we examined the correlates of positive and negative contact with one of the most stigmatized ethnic minorities, that is, Roma. We conducted a study in Bulgaria considering the point of view of the ethnic Bulgarian maj...
Conference Paper
Bulgaria is a multicultural nation characterized by the presence of historically settled Roma communities forming one of the country’s largest minorities. As elsewhere in Europe, Roma are the target of prejudice and discrimination. Moreover, Bulgarian Roma are poorly recognized institutionally, economically excluded and politically disengaged. Firs...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Collective action research has demonstrated that group identification plays a central role in mobilising individuals. Identification is particularly crucial for ethnic minorities in national contexts, because the conjunction between their identification to the subordinate (ethnic) and the superordinate (national) groups is frequently debated by the...
Article
This paper examines how temporally differentiated representations of ingroup victimhood and acknowledgment of outgroup suffering relate to present intergroup attitudes. A mixed-methods research was conducted in Bulgaria where both the ethnic majority and the Bulgarian Turkish minority can be viewed as victims and perpetrators in the past. Multigrou...
Conference Paper
The “minority” case has become a central issue in our societies in recent decades. However, research in social psychology focuses more frequently on the perspective of people who possess material and symbolic capital: the majority. This symposium therefore brings minority groups to the forefront. Drawing on a number of theoretical frameworks, the f...
Poster
Bulgaria is a multicultural nation characterized by the presence of historically settled Roma communities forming one of the country’s largest minorities. As elsewhere in Europe, Roma are the target of prejudice and discrimination. Moreover, Bulgarian Roma are poorly recognized institutionally, not integrated economically nor politically involved....

Ce chapitre à paraître présentera une réflexion théorique sur la genèse de l’ethnicité (Zagefka, 2009) en s’appuyant sur le cas particulier de la minorité connue sous le nom de "Gitans". Nous situons d’abord historiquement le groupe auquel renvoie les catégories de « Gitans » –et plus récemment de « Roms »– pour révéler ensuite le contenu de leur représentation sociale (voir e.g., Lo Monaco, Delouvée, & Rateau, 2016). Nous poursuivons par une revue de la littérature empirique qui révèle les conséquences de cette représentation sur les préjugés et la discrimination des majorités nationales européennes à l’égard de la minorité gitane (e.g., Ljujic, Vedder, Dekker, & van Geel, 2013 ; Tileagă, 2006 ; Pérez, Moscovici, & Chulvi, 2007). Nous revenons pour terminer sur la co-construction et la reproduction par les différents acteurs sociaux du préjugé ethnique.
