Social Inequality:

The role of Stigma and Self-Regulation

 

Van Laar’s work concentrates on the social psychological processes that transfer low social status into lower outcomes: how is it that negative stereotypes, low expectations, prejudice and discrimination affect members of stigmatized groups such as ethnic minorities and women to result in lower outcomes for example in education and on the labor market. This presentation will focus on contact and self-regulatory processes and their role in social inequality and stigma, using illustrations from laboratory and field studies, cross-sectional and longitudinal designs, and studies using psycho-physiological measures.
