This edited volume moves beyond social psychology's traditional focus on prejudice reduction, to explore novel approaches to improving relations and fostering empathy between members of socially dominant "ingroups" and oppressed/victimized "outgroups." Moving Beyond Prejudice Reduction examines the dynamics of attitudinal change from the individual to the group levels and proposes a proactive analytical framework that scholars and researchers on ethnic/racial identity, intergroup contact, and social conflict can use to improve relations between groups. The contributors to this volume explore these issues across three theoretical and conceptual dimensions: reconceptualizing how we think about intergroup attitudes, examining motivations and expectations across group boundaries, and promoting closeness and inclusion in cross-group relationships. The book's final grouping of chapters applies these concepts to forgiveness, reparation, and reconciliation among different ethnopolitical groups in postconflict societies. Specific case studies include Arab-Israeli relations and post-Pinochet Chile.
