Social Psychological Insights on Inclusion and Exclusion: Power, Social Justice and Identity

Tuesday, 17 July 2018: 15:30-17:20
RC42 Social Psychology (host committee)

Language: English

Tensions between a localising context and globalising world opens up spaces within which citizenship, entitlements and rights are contested. The quest for recognition and access to the distribution of resources are mutually intertwined in such debates. Institutions play a key role in either facilitating or restricting access to resources. This session invites papers which consider the politics of resource distribution and how it shapes transitions within societies, as well as how these processes reflect claims for social justice and equity, by drawing on both substantive research and theoretical insights that can be derived from social psychological perspectives.
