Abrams, Dominic, Vasiljevic, Milica, Wardrop, Hazel M. (2012) Prejudice reduction, collective action, and then what? Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 35 (06). pp. 425-426. ISSN 0140-525X. (doi:10.1017/S0140525X12001136) (KAR id:35770)


Comments on an article by Dixon et al. (see record 2013-00410-001). Despite downsides, it must, on balance, be good to reduce prejudice. Despite upsides, collective action can also have destructive outcomes. Improving intergroup relations requires multiple levels of analysis involving a broader approach to prejudice reduction, awareness of potential conflict escalation, development of intergroup understanding, and promotion of a wider human rights perspective.
