Symposia: 221/204 - The powerful influence of social norms in intergroup relations

Saturday 8 July
14.30 - 16.10 h.
Manuel Falla
Prejudice reduction interventions are largely ineffective. The speakers demonstrate one reason why: Intergroup behavior is guided by descriptive norms – people's beliefs about what their peers think. The reported findings provide groundwork for developing effective interventions to improve intergroup relations.
