Post doc Fellow Nadine Knab presented a talk in a symposium at the Annual Conference of the British Society of Social Psychology in London (5th-7th September 2022) which focused on Innovations and impact in addressing global challenges. The symposium was titled ״When Social Identities Face Contemporary Challenges: Implications for Intergroup Relations״ – including studies from a wide range of intergroup relations from Northern Ireland, to Germany and Israel. In her talk titled “Helping Disadvantaged Groups – How Norms and Threat Perceptions Can Lead to Social Inequality” Nadine presented two studies showing that there are psychological factors influencing action tendencies from host-society members towards refugees that could – in the long run – maintain social inequality.
