The goal of this project is to experimentally test the effectiveness of various methods of inducing global identifications and comparing them with each other, starting with checking whether there are differences when we use the terms people all over the world (or all humanity) vs. citizens of the world (or global citizens), what is the effectiveness of using different types of visual stimuli (e.g., pictures or videos), as well as cognitive, mixed, or more complex methods, such as real or imagined contact between people of different ethnicities.


We will test the effectiveness of all these methods through experiments conducted online and in laboratories in various areas, such as attitudes toward others and dehumanization, prosocial tendencies, concern for global issues, and taking collective action.


This project is part of the grant ‘Global social identifications - studying different ways of their understanding and the effectiveness of various methods of their experimental activation among people with different characteristics'.
