ISPP Conference 2019
From July 12 through July 15, researchers from the intergroup tolerance project, along with other researchers from the European Research Centre on Migration and Ethnic Relations (ERCOMER), attended the annual conference of the International Society of Political Psychology in Lisbon, Portugal. At the conference, post-doctoral researcher Dr. Levi Adelman chaired a session dedicated to the topic of intergroup tolerance. In the session, three PhD researchers from the intergroup relations team presented their work. First, PhD Evi Velthuis presented research on the different ways that people think about why they should tolerate others. Next, PhD Marija Dangubic discussed research on intolerance and what motivates people not to tolerate differences between groups. Finally, PhD Sara Cvetkovska presented findings about the consequences of tolerance for the people who experience it. Also at the conference, PI Dr. Maykel Verkuyten participated in a roundtable discussion on the future of the study of the political psychology of immigration. At the sessions and throughout the conference, the team had many opportunities to engage with other scientists about the study of intergroup tolerance and social diversity.
