EASP Small Group Meeting on New directions in the social psychology of solidarity

Organizers: John Drury, Roberto González, Nick Hopkins, Clifford Stevenson and Hanna Zagefka
May 10-11, 2016, Brighton, UK

Solidarity is fundamental in informal social interaction, social organization, social institutions and social change. But while research has shown the importance of forms of solidarity across a range of topics, solidarity itself has rarely been a focus. The aim of this meeting is to discuss and analyse the different usages of ‘solidarity’ in contemporary social psychology and by doing so achieve some conceptual clarification and research agenda-setting.

An expected outcome of the meeting will be the specification of research questions which would serve to delineate the necessary social psychological conditions and elements that are implied when we talk of ‘solidarity’.
