Christoph Daniel Schaefer


Research Associate

Postdoctoral Researcher in Social and Political Psychology

The overarching research interests that constitute the common thread in my research regard dealing with differences between groups, while these group differences are political, cultural, ethnic, or a combination of these.

Currently, I am working in the ESRC Shared Spaces Project of Prof. Shelley McKeown Jones, analysing predictors of intergroup contact and its effects on attitudes and behaviour towards outgroups, while my focus is on quantitative methods.

My research interests also cover the interplay between identities, respect, and tolerance on a societal level for dealing with intergroup differences. Additionally, a research focus of mine regards dealing with intractable conflicts, with the aim of examining the potential of dual identities for the reduction of intergroup tensions and, for conflict management, exploring constructive procedures perceived to be just and effective by the conflict parties involved.
