Dr. Linda Tropp had a very productive visit to the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship, where she met their staff working with the project team for the 'linkage' grant. She met with the staff who are in charge of funding integration and diversity-related programs throughout the country and shared the latest on intergroup contact research with them.
Dr. Bernhard Leidner has received a Grant-in-Aid from the Society for the Study of Social Issues (SPSSI) for a research project entitled “Understanding and Alleviating Competitive Victimhood to Promote Intergroup Reconciliation: A Field-Experimental Investigation of Causes of Competitive Victimhood and an Intervention to Counter It.”
Dr. Linda Tropp was awarded a grant with her fellow co-PIs at the Russell Sage Foundation for a multi-university, multi-disciplinary project entitled "Immigrant-Native Relations in 21st Century America: Intergroup Contact, Trust and Civic Engagement".
