This volume is part of an annual series that reflects the dynamism of social psychology in Europe and the attention now paid to European ideas and research. Although open to authors from all nations, one of its major purposes is to further the international exchange of ideas by providing an outlet for substantial accounts of theoretical and empirical work that have not been previously published in English. The emphasis of these contributions will be on the critical assessment of major areas of research and individual programmes of research as well as on topics and initiatives of contemporary interest and originality.
