Diskriminierung zwischen Gruppen

  • Ulrich WagnerEmail author


Diskriminierung zwischen Gruppen geht auf psychologische und soziale Prozesse zurück. Diskriminierung beeinträchtigt die Diskriminierenden und die Diskriminierten. Möglichkeiten, der Neigung zu Diskriminierung entgegenzuwirken, bieten Informations- und Kontaktkampagnen. Voraussetzung für die Wirksamkeit solcher Kampagnen ist allerdings ein entsprechender gesellschaftlicher Konsens.
