Intergroup Forgiveness and Reparation in Chile: the role of identity and intergroup emotions

González, R., Manzi, J., & Noor, M.


Over the past 50 years, social psychology has prioritized the study of intergroup prejudice and conflict. Our discipline now has numerous models to explain how intergroup conflict is created, maintained, and reduced. By contrast, our understanding about how to actively promote positive outcomes within intergroup relations is less well developed. Studying the psychological processes of such positive outcomes is important because it could provide new insights for planning real life interventions aimed at improving intergroup relations rather than simply reducing prejudice and conflict between groups. This chapter contributes to this goal by presenting a novel theoretical framework examining the role of intergroup emotions and social identities in predicting intergroup forgiveness and reparation attitudes. In so doing, we review the research we have conducted on intergroup emotions, forgiveness, and reparation in the post-Pinochet era in Chile.
