DEVELOPMENT OF CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS' REASONING ABOUT SOCIAL INEQUALITY

May 7, 2021, 10:00 h
 

Social inequality is pervasive in many societies, with status hierarchies typically originating from and being perpetuated by the early emergence of intergroup discrimination. Developmental psychologists have begun to understand the origins of the psychological processes that produce these inequalities (Brown, 2017; Ruck et al.,2019). In this talk Prof. Grütter will present findings on children’s and adolescents’ perceptions and evaluations of status hierarchies and social inequality, their resource allocation strategies, and their motivation to address present inequalities and reduce intergroup discrimination. Thereby, Prof. Grütter will discuss the role of peers, teachers, and parents as contextual influences and potential target points for promoting the motivation to address social inequality among future generations of youth.
