Abstract

The Common Ingroup Identity Model (CIIM) holds that four levels of categorization (the interpersonal, intergroup, and particularly, superordinate group, and dual identity levels) mediate the intergroup contact-bias relationship. CIIM was tested in an Anglo-French intergroup context with explicit and implicit (IAT) measures of prejudice. Results showed that the intergroup level partially mediated an increase in bias and all other levels partially mediated a reduction in bias. Implicit attitude moderated three effects of contact and levels of categorization on intergroup anxiety. Contact, superordinate and dual identity levels of categorization were associated with reduced anxiety when implicit bias was high, but not when it was low.
