Article
Full-text available
Positive intergroup contact and cross-group friendships are known to have numerous benefits for intergroup relations in diverse schools. However, children do not always spontaneously engage in cross-group friendships, choosing rather to spend time with their ingroup peers. Several factors have previously been identified that influence children’s co...

The Roma have been and still are a target of prejudice, marginalization, and social exclusion across Europe, especially in East-Central European countries. This paper focuses on a set of stereotypical, emotional, and behavioral evaluative responses toward Roma people selected as representing the underlying components of anti-Roma bias. Employing ne...
Article

Despite numerous efforts of Roma inclusion from various State and non-governmental organisations, segregation and socioeconomic marginalisation of the Roma is still widespread in Slovakia. In this paper, we show what social-psychological factors intervene into the process of intergroup relations change and how they can influence the effectiveness o...

Nurturing compassion is not only beneficial for one’s well-being in terms of feelings and cognitions directed toward oneself, but it can also have positive effects on attitudes toward other people through associated humanity and recognition of the universality of suffering. Having compassion toward others may be particularly beneficial in intergrou...
Article
The way politicians talk about minorities institutes the normative context of intergroup relations. We investigated how endorsement of different political discourses predicts donation and collective action intentions by majority members toward the Roma in five European countries. The survey was conducted online using samples demographically similar...

Segregácia a diskriminácia rómskej menšiny na Slovensku je aj napriek antidiskriminačným politikám stále rozšírená, a to najmä v školskom prostredí. Prvým cieľom tejto štúdie bolo identifikovať príklady dobrej praxe medzi intervenciami zameranými na sociálnu zmenu v prospech rómskej menšiny na Slovensku, ktoré boli úplne alebo čiastočne realizované...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The positive effect of intergroup contact on prejudice towards minorities is well documented. However, the conditions under which contact occurs may sometimes render it ineffective, or even lead to the opposite effect. Even though several studies have recently pointed out the importance of broader context in which contact takes place, such as preva...

Hlavným cieľom výskumu prezentovaného v tejto správe bolo identifikovať príklady dobrej praxe antidiskriminačných intervencií a zistiť, aké metodické postupy sú ich realizátormi a účastníkmi považované za najúčinnejšie na zmierňovanie predsudkov a zlepšovanie vzťahov medzi majoritou a rómskou minoritou. S využitím poznatkov sociálnej psychológie, k...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Predchádzajúce výskumy ukázali, že negatívne postoje voči Rómom by sa mali považovať za osobitný typ predsudkov vzhľadom na to, že v tomto prípade medziskupinový kontakt skôr zvyšuje než znižuje predsudky. Navyše, antidiskriminačné intervencie niekedy môžu mať negatívny vplyv na postoje voči znevýhodneným skupinám. Uskutočnili sme obsahovú analýzu...

Project
The general scientific goal of the project is to integrate results of the research from the area of violent behaviors, conducted from the perspective of personality trait analyses and social psychology. To date, dispositional factors related to antisocial and aggressive behaviors are not often included in the research on violent CAs, although results on the self-reported scales of antisocial tendencies have been linked to variables important for understanding social behaviors, such as SDO, prejudice, perceived intergroup threats, dehumanization, support of political issues, and sexist and violent attitudes. The presented project aims at the integration of the different psychological perspectives to more fully understand the motivation to accept, support, and join violent group actions. Research project supported by Polish National Science Centre, OPUS 22 call. Principal Investigator: Tomasz Besta.
