Sander Sleijpen, Maykel Verkuyten, Levi Adelman,

West European societies have seen strong debates about the acceptance of Muslim minority practices.

Toleration and prejudice-reduction: Two ways of improving intergroup relations.

Maykel Verkuyten, Kumar Yogeeswaran, Levi Adelman,

While a large body of social psychological research has shed light on the nature of prejudice and how to reduce it, we argue that such work does not address situations of cultural or religious outgroup beliefs and practices that are considered incompatible with one's own. The present theoretical article contrasts ... Read more >>

Jolien Geerlings, Jochem Thijs, Maykel Verkuyten,

Being here First: Ethnic Majority Children's Autochthony Beliefs and Attitudes toward Immigrants.

Maykel Verkuyten, Jochem Thijs,

Autochthony belief ("that a country is owned by its first inhabitants") can be an acceptable reason for claiming collective ownership of a territory and this claim can have negative consequences for newcomers.

To accept or not to accept: Level of moral concern impacts on tolerance of Muslim minority practices.

Magdalena Hirsch, Maykel Verkuyten, Kumar Yogeeswaran,

Living with diversity requires that we sometimes accept outgroup practices that we personally disapprove of (i.e., tolerance). Using an experimental design, we examined Dutch majority group members' tolerance of controversial practices with varying degrees of moral concern, performed by a culturally dissimilar (Muslims) or similar (orthodox Protestant) minority group. Furthermore, ... Read more >>

Collective Psychological Ownership and Intergroup Relations.
