Our lab members will present their research results during this year's virtual annual meeting of the ISPP on Monday, July 12, 2021, 3:00 PM - 4:20 PM CEST, Virtual Room 2.
Panel: Global human identification and global citizenship: predictors and social consequences
Chairs: Justin Hackett, Katarzyna Hamer
Research on global identities and global citizenship has surged in recent years. This panel highlights some of the recent work on predictors and consequences of global identities and citizenship.
Hackett, Gaffney, and Kuljian show the consequence of a leader promoting nationalism on followers’ tendency to identify less with humanity.
Replicating earlier research on intergroup forgiveness results from the work of Hamer and McFarland reveal that collective narcissism negatively and identification with all humanity positively mediate the relationship between both U.S. identification and intergroup forgiveness as well as blatant dehumanization towards refugees, and Polish identification and blatant dehumanization towards groups from outside the nation (including refugees).
Loy, Tröger, Prior, and Reese found that remembering international experiences might raise the salience of a global ingroup. Furthermore, the stronger people’s global self-definition and self-investment, the more they refrain from flying, support policy measures restricting flying and car use, and promote public transportation.
Pizarro, Cusi, Basabe, and Páez found self-transcendence emotions –and not individuals’ personal orientations– can facilitate a global identification and through it, increase prosocial tendencies towards others.
The preliminary findings from Carmona, Guerra, Hofhuis, and Sindic suggest that, due to the prototypical content they activate, superordinate categories might differ in terms of their inclusiveness. That is, “citizen of the world” might be a lower-order category than “human”, challenging the positive expected outcomes of a highly inclusive common ingroup identity.
This is a very diverse panel – in terms of institutions, countries from where the presenters live and work, and in topics connected to global identity.
