Advances in Intergroup Contact Research: Showcasing, Consolidating, Deconstructing and Innovating the Science of Social Integration

This time last week, Professor Fiona White, along with Rachel Maunder and Elise Boccanfuso, were presenting their research in Newcastle at the joint SASP-SPSSI group meeting entitled “Advances in Intergroup Contact Research: Showcasing, Consolidating, Deconstructing and Innovating the Science of Social Integration”.

The group meeting was attended by international experts on intergroup contact, including big names like Linda Tropp (pictured) and Miles Hewstone, as well as a cohort of up-and-coming early career researchers, and even a pod of dolphins. Together, we discussed current trends and issues in research, directions for the future, and how our expertise can be used to shape policy and create lasting social change across the globe.
