Social Psychology
Osnabrück University

The project analyses the production and maintenance of (non-)migrantised figures and associated prejudices at the individual level. Through a series of mainly quantitative social psychological substudies, it investigates the individual and socio-political motives for the use of three different diversity strategies – ›multiculturalism‹, ›colour-blindness‹ and ›deconstruction‹ – and the influence they have on the production of (non-)migrantised figures and associated prejudices. The project also includes methodologically reflexive studies on the possible reproduction of prejudices in and through questionnaires.
