Our research examines how people’s identities and experiences as group  members affect their relations with members of other groups. Much of our  work focuses on relations between groups that differ in status on the  basis of race, ethnicity, religion, and/or national origin, to consider  how legacies of inequality and conflict shape group members’ views of  each other and the society in which they live, as well as their  motivations for social change. We also seek to identify and test  strategies that can foster improved relations between groups while also  achieving ever-greater levels of social equality and justice.
