Article
The global need to reverse political disaffection has motivated researchers to seek ways of fostering citizenship engagement. This study focuses on the role adolescents' citizenship self-efficacy plays in linking civic knowledge and classroom climate to civic engagement. We use data from 4838 Chilean students (Mage = 14.16) who participated in the...

Las normas sociales impactan en las creencias y conductas de las personas. Por lo tanto, una norma social que establezca y valide la igualdad entre hombres y mujeres podría propiciar actitudes más igualitarias. Dada la importancia de las normas en las interacciones sociales, el objetivo de este trabajo fue analizar el efecto de las normas igualitar...

Even though formal processes (i.e., gender quotes) are necessary to achieve gender justice, attitudinal changes (i.e., support of egalitarian social norms) are also essential. The endorsement of sexism and gender stereotypes perpetuate inequality on a daily basis, and can be seen as barriers that prevent societies from reaching social justice. Ther...
Article
Whether there are common features inherent to the psychology of Indigenous peoples around the globe has been the subject of much debate. We argue that Indigenous peoples share the experience of colonization and its social and psychological consequences. We develop this argument across four sections: ( a) the global history of colonization and socia...
Article
La pregunta sobre la existencia de características comunes inherentes a la psicología de los pueblos Indígenas de todo el mundo ha sido objeto de mucho debate. Nosotros argumentamos que los pueblos Indígenas comparten la experiencia de la colonización, así como sus consecuencias sociales y psicológicas. Desarrollamos este argumento en cuatro seccio...
Article
Confrontation is a good strategy for lowering discrimination. Given that victims who confront are evaluated negatively, the role of witnesses of discrimination is crucial. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyse how women who confront discrimination not directed towards them are evaluated (versus those who don’t confront), by examining the...
Article
Socially disadvantaged groups have to deal with diverse negative circumstances. We can expect that high status groups often legitimate and justify these disadvantages. However, when the low status group itself shares this perspective, it is more threatening: How do disadvantaged groups deal with social injustice when the ingroup itself frames it as...

Even though taking part in elections is one of the most direct tools to influence the socio-political system, many people choose not to vote. Research shows that this problem is especially prevalent among those citizens who do not believe they have control over social and political issues, but the question remains as to what could encourage their v...

Modern societies are characterized by economic inequality. Redistributive policies are one of the means to reduce it. We argue that perceived economic inequality in everyday life and intolerance of it are central factors to enhance positive attitudes toward redistribution. To test it, we conducted a four-wave longitudinal panel study in Chile with...
Article
In the context of the COVID‐19 pandemic, personal protective measures (e.g., social distancing, handwashing, and mask wearing) have been adopted as a cornerstone to limit the spread of the disease. Yet, the effectiveness of these measures depends on people's levels of adherence. In this article, we apply social‐psychological research to the study o...
Article
Full-text available
Previous research has focused on the relation between social class and prosocial behavior. However, this relation is yet unclear. In this work, we shed light on this issue by considering the effect of the level of empathy and the social class of the recipient of help on two types of prosociality, namely helping and caring. In one experimental study...
Article
In this study, we examined the intergenerational transmission of collective action from parents to children. Using a mixed‐method approach combining quantitative and qualitative analysis, we analysed data from 100 dyads of activist parents in Chile (involved in the mobilizations against the dictatorship during the 1980s) and their adult children (N...

As part of a campus-wide prevention program, the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC) implemented a cross-sequential survey on sexual violence. In this article, we report data from the first wave (2018; N = 2,046) from three cohorts of undergraduates (Year 1, n = 792; Year 2, n = 601; Year 3, n = 653). We found an overall twelve-month pre...
Article
The present research demonstrates intergenerational influences on collective action participation, whereby parents’ past and current participation in collective action (descriptive family norms) shape their children’s participation in conventional and radical collective action via injunctive family norms (perception that parents value such particip...

The relationships between subjective status and perceived legitimacy are important for understanding the extent to which people with low status are complicit in their oppression. We use novel data from 66 samples and 30 countries (N = 12,788) and find that people with higher status see the social system as more legitimate than those with lower stat...
Article
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of prosocial behaviour against aggression in a school‐based universal intervention adapted in two different (non‐Western) countries, Colombia and Chile. Using a randomised pretest–post‐test design (and controlling for participants' gender and parents' level of education), current results highlighte...
Article
Previous research shows that larger interference is observed in contexts associated with a high proportion of congruent trials than in those associated with a low proportion of congruent trials. Given that one of the most relevant contexts for human beings is social context, researchers have recently explored the possibility that social stimuli cou...
Article
Note: Accepted article. In recent years, multiple social movements have emerged around the world. In addition, public surveys indicate the highest recorded levels of support for protest. In this context of acceptance of collective action, we examine the role of non-activists in the legitimacy of social movements, as this ‘passive’ support can cont...

Objective Why do people justify intergroup violence? In this paper we examine attitudes towards violence perpetrated by indigenous activists to claim for rights and violence by pólice officers against indigenous people. We assess the role that perceived pólice legitimacy, procedurally just policing towards the indigenous minority group and group id...

Article
How do individuals deal with group disadvantage when their fellow in-group members conceive it as legitimate? Integrating research on the normative conflict model (Packer, 2008, Pers. Soc. Psychol. Rev., 12, 50) and collective action, we expect high identifiers to reject the in-group norm of legitimacy that justifies the inequality, and to assert t...

Chileans, like people from most Latin American countries, report little trust in their political institutions (66.6% of the population reported having low or no trust in the justice department, 76.9% in the congress and 64.9% in the government; Corporacion Latinobarometro, 2013). Indeed, the observed decline in Chilean voter turnout has been strong...

El propósito de este trabajo es analizar el efecto que tiene el contacto intergrupal, es decir, el contacto entre distintos grupos sociales, en la reducción del prejuicio y en la generación de actitudes positivas entre dichos grupos. Concretamente, nos centramos en el efecto de dicho contacto entre niños/as de distintos grupos que comparten y convi...
Article
The current study explores different routes to civic involvement by identifying how a context-specific dimension of empathy and beliefs of autonomy and dependency might jointly predict different types of giving behaviors (i.e., monetary donations), which in turn should predict civic engagement. The sample consisted of 1,294 participants (656 female...
Article
Radical action against social disadvantage is highly consequential but has been far less studied than moderate collective action. But who supports such extreme actions and why? In two studies, we examine the relation between group identification and support for radical action in disadvantaged groups. Paradoxically, low identifiers are more willing...

Full-text available
The structural model of deservingness (Feather, 1996) posits that entitlement and deservingness are two different predictors of perceptions of legitimacy. Specifically, entitlement refers to the accomplishment of established social rules, whereas deservingness relates to the outcomes that individuals earn as products of their actions. Although both...

La desigualdad social ha estado presente a lo largo de la historia de la humanidad, pero en ocasiones algunos miembros de los grupos desaventajados han desafiado el orden social establecido con el objetivo de obtener una posición mejor para el grupo en la jerarquía social. Sin embargo, no todos los individuos están dispuestos a luchar contra la des...

Social inequality has been widespread throughout human history. Nevertheless, some members of disadvantaged groups have challenged the prevailing social order with the aim of improving their group position in the social hierarchy. However, not every individual is willing to take part in this struggle. The question is, what factors lead to the fight...
Chapter
This chapter calls into question the traditionally conceived dichotomy between automatic and controlled processes. Experimental psychology has frequently used this dichotomy to describe cognitive processes such as attention, learning, and memory. Recent work has produced a new body of evidence that challenges this dichotomy. In this chapter, we pre...

Full-text available
Several studies have shown the impact of legitimacy on dealing with group power disadvantage. In the present paper we focus on the impact of internal legitimacy (i.e., the ingroup’s appraisal of the fairness of its own powerless position) on the ingroup stereotype as a way of contesting the power disadvantage. Results show that especially in the in...

La presente investigación tiene como objetivo general analizar la influencia de las variables legitimadoras de la desigualdad económica (i.e., SDO, meritocracia) en el mantenimiento de la desigualdad. Esto se realizará a través de tres objetivos específicos: Estudiar el efecto de las variables legitimadoras de la desigualdad sobre 1) la (des)humanización complementaria de las clases bajas y altas (humanización de un grupo junto con la deshumanización del otro, y viceversa), 2) las atribuciones causales sobre la pobreza y la riqueza (i.e., atribuciones internas y externas) y 3) el apoyo a políticas redistributivas (ver figura 1). Además, se pretende estudiar las relaciones entre estas variables, como antecedentes y mediadores del efecto de ideología en el apoyo directo a la redistribución de ingresos. De tal forma que el presente proyecto cubre dos áreas de análisis que han sido poco estudiadas dentro de la Psicología Social, 1) el estudio de la percepción social de las clases altas o grupos favorecidos y 2) el análisis de la interdependencia o complementariedad de las actitudes hacia las clases bajas y altas en el mantenimiento de la desigualdad económica.
