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".
Social psychologists and peace scholars have both contributed a great deal of knowledge of the factors that enhance or inhibit conflict and the likely effectiveness of practices and interventions that address such conflict. However, contributions from these scholarly communities have grown apart and lack the integration that helped to create the interdisciplinary investigations of early peace research. This Handbook brings these perspectives together to encourage a more integrative approach to the study of intergroup conflict and peace.
