Intercultural Psychology Group - Migration and Integration

Welcome to the Intercultural Psychology Group - Migration and Integration

Intercultural Psychology deals with human experience and behavior in situations where people come into contact with different cultures.

The intercultural psychology group focuses on research at the intersection of social and developmental psychology. In particular, we study children's and adolescents' development in the context of ethnic diversity. Research topics include:

  • Antecedents and consequences of intergroup relations (e.g., cross-ethnic friendships, friendship homophily, peer influence)
  • Acculturative and educational processes in the context of ethnic diversity (e.g., social and cultural adaptation, social identity development, culturally responsive teaching)
  • Political socialization (e.g., parental, peer, and school influences on  collective behavior, political participation, and civic engagement)
