How Needs Can Motivate Intergroup Reconciliation in the Face of Intergroup Conflict

(p.117) Chapter 6 How Needs Can Motivate Intergroup Reconciliation in the Face of Intergroup Conflict
The Social Psychology of Intergroup Reconciliation

Felicia Pratto

Demis E. Glasford

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the thesis that intergroup conflict may incite needs that can be met through intergroup reconciliation. In particular, it reviews research that suggests three needs that are particularly salient during intergroup conflict — the need for self-esteem, the need to belong, and the need for self-integrity — can also be fulfilled through intergroup reconciliation. In other words, intergroup conflict may motivate social-psychological needs that can be conducive to intergroup reconciliation.

Keywords:   intergroup relations, intergroup conflict, intergroup reconciliation, self-esteem, belong, self-integrity
