5. Maj - Granada

5.5. Granada, Spain

On May 5, 2016, Siniša Lakić (PhD, a member of University of Banja Luka research team) met with a group of social psychology researchers at the University of Granada (Spain), consisted of Prof. Rosa Rodríguez-Bailón, Prof. Guillermo B. Willis and interested PhD students. During the meeting, Siniša presented the specificities of the Western Balkans societies, as well as the methods and the main results of the project “From inclusive identities towards inclusive societies”. The presentation was followed by an exchange of ideas, which was particularly focused on the relevance of investigating complex social identities both in the Western Balkans countries and in Spain where regional identities have been playing an increasingly important role in the recent years (e.g. the issue of Catalonia independence). In addition, related research materials were exchanged and a potential research collaboration was discussed.
