Group Processes and Intergroup Relations Preconference

The Group Processes and Intergroup Relations Preconference at EASP 2020 brings together world-renowned scholars whose work focuses broadly on addressing social and societal issues. This is a diverse field of inquiry, and as a result, this preconference addresses social and political decision making and social change from the perspectives of political psychology, social identity, small group decision making, and the experiences of stigmatized identities.

Where: June 30, 2020
Venue: room 6.01, Institute of Psychology, 6 Ingardena Street

Dr. Ana Leite of Durham University (UK) is leading this development opportunity.
