Description

This edited volume moves beyond social psychology's traditional focus on prejudice reduction, to explore novel approaches to improving relations and fostering empathy between members of socially dominant "ingroups" and oppressed/victimized "outgroups." Moving Beyond Prejudice Reduction examines the dynamics of attitudinal change from the individual to the group levels and proposes a proactive analytical framework that scholars and researchers on ethnic/racial identity, intergroup contact, and social conflict can use to improve relations between groups. The contributors to this volume explore these issues across three theoretical and conceptual dimensions: * reconceptualizing how we think about intergroup attitudes * examining motivations and expectations across group boundaries * promoting closeness and inclusion in cross-group relationships The book's final grouping of chapters applies these concepts to forgiveness, reparation, and reconciliation among different ethnopolitical groups in postconflict societies. Specific case studies include Arab-Israeli relations and post-Pinochet Chile.
