Questions related to Intergroup Relations
I need a non-experimental tool in the form of scale to measure trust between two social groups. If anyone have relevant article, please refer.
Dear fellow researchers, I am Edita. I am currently conducting a longitudinal international research and collaborating with other researchers about forgiveness.The goal of this research is to better describe distinctive presentations of forgiveness in various cultures, contributing to greater understanding of what it means to forgive. Part of the research involves these instruments: "Cultural Motives for Transgression Resolution" (39 items) and "Intergroup Forgiveness" (was created by Noor, Brown, & Prentice, 2008). My questions are do you know the reference and how do you score and interpret the "Cultural Motives for Transgression Resolution" scale? In addition, how do you score and interpret the Intergroup Forgiveness scale (e.g. any total score)?
Please kindly share it with me if you know about it! Thank you in advance!
I am interested in studying the minimal group paradigm (MGP; introduced in 1970s by Henri Tajfel) in the context of social categorization and prejudice. I was reviewing literature for the same. Is there any literature available on the topic that is in an Indian context or written by an Indian author(s). If not, could you suggest any studies from Asia, in general?
I'm searching for innovative approach in order to explain discimimation versus non family members, going beyond intergroup relations theory (ingroup vs. outgroup, that is family members vs. non family ones) within family firms.
I study motivation for French as a second language learning in Montreal, Canada. Intergroup relations between Anglophones and Francophones are not easy for historical and legal reasons and it affects motivation.
Research demonstrating the role of self-deception in racism, and the prevalence of racism? Any leads would be appreciated.
Suppose two people attempt a task, and both fail. One is an ingroup member, and one is an outgroup member. Is there research suggesting that people perceive that task to be more difficult, and potentially even recruit more cognitive resources in attempting it, when it is an ingroup member vs. an outgroup member who attempted it?
I am developing a brief educational intervention for recently arrived refugees into the U.S. and would like to norm an evidenced based instrument for pre/post test purposes. I have come across a few, like the Quick Discrimination Inventory, but wold like to know what other options are out there that may not be popping up in the literature. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!
Integrated Threat Theory (ITT) argues that when e.g. US citizens perceive Hispanic immigrants to compete for limited ressources (realisitc threat) or to undermine American values and change America's culture (symbolic threat), the perceived threat causes prejudice.

While I really like the theory, I was wondering if noone ever tried to challenge the ITT or if anyone has ever questioned its additonal use beyond classical Social Identity Theory assumptions?
Could anyone refer me to a critical article?
I am interested in seeing to what extent, if any, attitudes to the student evaluation of teaching even if purportedly for formative purposes are influenced by academics' attitudes to the new public management
I am trying to manipulate the acceptance of a social norm in a survey experiment (the social norm is measured like an attitude).
Because of the high acceptance on the baseline level of the participants, I tried to reduce the acceptance and not to enhance it.
But nevertheless, it seems to be pretty difficult to achieve an effect. So the question is, if anybody has some experience in succesfully manipulating a social norm in a survey experiement?
