[OUTREACH] Research of 13 COES academics were presented at the 41st Annual Scientific Meeting of the ISPP

ISPP

From the 4th to the 7th of July, 8 COES researchers from the Group and Individual Interactions line presented at the 41st Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Political Psychology. The theme of this year’s conference was “Beyond Borders and Boundaries: Perspectives from Political Psychology” and was carried out in San Antonio, Texas, United States. “The conference topic also resonates, ironically, with Texas where a border wall with Mexico is being planned and where recent legislation has restricted LGBT people, said Eva G.T. Green, President of ISPP, in the welcome speech.

The COES researchers, Roberto González and Héctor Carvacho, organized two symposia in which eight papers were presented, corresponding to the research of 13 academics of the Center.

In the symposium Antecedents of Social Cohesion: Segregation, Inequality, Contact and Perceived Justice, organized by Roberto González, 4 papers of COES were presented, whose authors, in total, respond to 10 researchers, including 1 doctoral student and 2 research assistants. In addition, it counted with the participation of Linda Tropp, who is part of the international network of COES.

The second symposium entitled Antecedents and Consequences of Political Participation in Collective Actions in Chile, organized by Héctor Carvacho, was carried out with the results of the Fondecyt study Nº1161371, “Psychological consequences of participation in social movements”, directed by Roberto González and co-written with Carvacho. Of the 4 presentations, 3 were from COES academics, whose research consisted of 8 researchers from the Center, including 1 doctoral student and 4 research assistants.

Ana Figueiredo, also participated in the same Meeting and presented the paper “The Mapuche in Chile: The interconnections between territorial claims and present-day social conflict”.
