Project’s results presented at the Mini Conference on Political Psychology in Novi Sad

The Mini Conference on Political Psychology in South-Eastern Europe sponsored by International Society for Political Psychology (ISPP) was held at University of Novi Sad from 7th to 9th October, 2016.

The conference’s main aim was to gather researchers and practitioners from SEE in the field of political psychology in one place so that we can establish new, and broaden existing networks. Program included presentations from researchers from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Romania, Greece, Hungary and Serbia, as well as researchers from outside the region dealing with regional topics.

Members of our research team presented two papers and took part in round table discussion. Marko Vladisavljević, a member of our research team from Serbia, was the first author of the paper “How to make national identity more inclusive: Minorities in Western Balkans” ; Vladimir Turjačanin, leader of our BiH research team, was the first author of the paper “Contact as a mediator of relation between majority/minority status and out group emotions among youth in the Western Balkans”. Vladimir was also invited to take part in the Round table Political Psychology in SEE - past, present and future, where he presented the project.
