Reducing prejudice and discrimination


Department of Psychology

About the Project

Prejudice and discrimination against people based on their race (i.e., racism) remains a significant issue in the UK. For example, a recent survey indicates that 64% of Britons with a Black ethnic background report experiencing racism (Abrams et al., 2018). The current salience of contemporary social movements relating to race (e.g. Black Lives Matter, #IAmNotAVirus) indicate not only that racism is a critical and widespread issue, but also suggest increased awareness of, and motivation to reduce bias amongst the White majority. This PhD project would take a novel approach to tackling racism by integrating the literatures on prejudice-reduction and behaviour change, with the aim of developing interventions that increase behaviours to tackle racism in oneself and others (e.g. challenging instances of racism; engaging in race-talk, educating oneself on issues of racial bias etc).
