NWO MaGW grant for prof.dr. N. Ellemers, dr. F. Harinck, dr. D. Scheepers and dr. B. Beersma

July 6, 2009 - Prof.dr. Naomi Ellemers, dr. Fieke Harinck, dr. Daan T. Scheepers (UL) and dr. Bianca Beersma (UvA) received an NWO MaGW grant in the Conflict and Security program, for the project "Value conflict: How differences in values affect conflict-escalation and effectiveness of interventions". Two PhD students and a postdoc will be appointed on this project.

Value conflict: How differences in values affect conflict-escalation and effectiveness of interventions

Previous research has addressed conflicts concerning the allocation of scarce resources (money, space). However, differences in core values (justice, religion), which often are embedded in people's socio-cultural identities, have become common sources of conflict. Unfortunately, we know very little about the mechanisms involved in the development, escalation and reconciliation of value conflicts. This project aims to address this issue, by taking a cross-levels approach to examine how group identities affect interpersonal value conflict. We will study (1) the development and escalation, (2) the effectiveness of different interventions for reconciliation, and (3) the impact of cultural differences in value conflict.
