SOCIAL IDENTITIES IN SOUTH-EASTERN EUROPE
Moderator:Vladimir Mihić
The symposium papers deal with the issue of social identities in SEE as important aspect of social psychological researches into the causes and consequences of conflicts in the region. At the symposium four papers will be presented with research data from several international projects whose joint theme are different types of social identity. The first one deals with the issue of pro-European attitudes in Serbia and Croatia, and the research data indicates different socio-demographic correlates of the positive attitudes toward Europe and European integration in these two countries. The second one tries to evaluate how can conspiracy theories be seen as a tool for minority groups to manage the threat they feel from the groups in power. It deals with the question whether different minority groups (religious or ethnic minorities, women, people of low socioeconomic status) embrace CTs more than majority groups. The third paper, drawing on both qualitative and quantitative data, discusses the ways in which national identities become constructed through a dynamic process where both in-group representations and meta-representations (perceived out-group representations) of the social group interact and shape the meaning given to a shared identity. Finally, the last paper will present data trying to answer the question if the dual identity group, i.e. the group with two possibly conflictive group memberships (e.g. Bosniak in Serbia who are both ethnically Bosniak and nationally citizens of Serbia) has potential to act as a gateway between the two groups they belong to?
