Introduction
I am interested in effects of social recognition experiences, especially equality-based respect experiences, and how those experiences shape people's self-views (e.g., their self-respect). High self-respect enables individuals to assertively claim their rights or to protest against injustice without violating others' rights and thus represents a socially harmonious form of protest. I use experimental, cross-sectional as well as longitudinal data to test my hypotheses.

Chapter
Global kompetent zu handeln bedeutet unter anderem, soziale Verantwortung zu übernehmen und Anerkennungserfahrungen für Menschen zu ermöglichen. Im folgenden Kapitel beleuchten wir aus einer (sozial)psychologischen, soziologischen und philosophischen Perspektive, zu welchen Herausforderungen die weltweit zunehmende sozioökonomische Ungleichheit füh...
Article
The teaching profession faces a general shortage of teachers in most countries, but a lack of male teachers is particularly prevalent. Past research has demonstrated that students' career choices depend in part on a job's assumed gender fit, i.e. whether a profession is perceived as appropriate for one's own gender. This process may be particularly...
Article
Participation in society is instrumental for democracy and of special importance for minority members. Despite broad research in the context of adults' participation, the earlier formative years and the participation of students in school activities have been neglected so far. The present research examined antecedents and consequences of Latin Amer...
Article
Recent research shows that self‐respect (defined as seeing yourself as a person with equal rights) predicts assertive but not aggressive responses to injustice in interpersonal contexts. The present research focuses on the antecedents of self‐respect and its consequences for collective action tendencies among members of disadvantaged groups. Across...
Article
Objective: The present research systematically investigates the role of recognition experiences at work as a protective factor for burnout. Method: In two cross-sectional studies (N = 328 and N = 220) with employees we measured via online questionnaires three forms of recognition (achievement-based social esteem, equality-based respect and need-...

In this research, we tested equality-based respect from ingroup members as a social antecedent of positive assertiveness (i.e., voicing one’s opinions) and group performance. A pretest with employees at the workplace supported that the variables of interest were indeed correlated. The main experimental study then confirmed that participants who had...

In the present research self-respect is defined as a person’s ability to see the self as someone who has the same basic rights and dignity as others. Self-respect fills a gap in previous theorizing on the self because unlike other self-concepts it can be linked to assertiveness and claim making. Self-respect was empirically distinguished from self-...

Global identity reflects social identification with the world and the largest, most inclusive human ingroup and is generally associated with behavior that serves the world and all humans, such as transnational cooperation or proenvironmental engagement. While the outcomes of being globally identified are well-established, the antecedents of global...
Article
Etwa eine Million Geflüchtete kamen im Jahr 2015 nach Deutschland. Vielen soll eine langfristige Bleibeperspektive ermöglicht werden. In unserem Beitrag möchten wir herausstellen, wie wichtig dabei die Entwicklung einer gemeinsamen Identität von Geflüchteten und Mitgliedern der Aufnahmegesellschaft ist. Zudem geben wir ein mögliches Werkzeug an die...
Article
Full-text available
Inspired by philosophical reasoning about the connection between equality and freedom, we examined whether experiences of (equality-based) respect increase perceived autonomy. This link was tested with generalized experiences of respect and autonomy people make in their daily lives (Study 1) and with more specific experiences of employees at the wo...
Article
Past research has demonstrated that equality-based respect is an important antecedent of positive social interaction and group-serving behavior. In the present research we tested whether intragroup equality-based respect affects perceptions of being treated as a human as well as self-dehumanization. In Experiment 1, we found that high respect recei...
Article
Two laboratory experiments tested the hypothesis that (equality-based) respect from outgroup members facilitates recategorization of the original ingroup and outgroup as a common group. In Experiment 1, we varied respect from outgroup members (low vs. medium vs. high) and measured recipients' willingness to recategorize. As predicted, high respect...
Article
The article examines the role of dual identification with both the ethnocultural ingroup and the society of residence in the politicization of migrants. The researchers employed a longitudinal and comparative research design with members of the two largest, but sociologically very different, migrant groups in Germany as research participants (i.e....
Article
The study presented in this article examined the role of social recognition as an equal in group members' motivation to serve their ingroup as well as actual group-serving behavior. We predicted and found that social recognition as opposed to non-recognition as an equal, communicated by fellow group members, increased participants' group-serving mo...
