Our project addresses the growing polarization in European societies. It will examine inclusivity norms, which are social group norms that promote tolerance and the willingness to interact and collaborate with opposing groups. Our innovative interdisciplinary approach will provide a unique view of how inclusivity norms in polarized settings are transmitted, how they can effectively reduce conflicts between opposing groups, and how they can be promoted.
