Abstract:

We investigated a model which considered the effects of intergroup contact and ingroup identification as predictors on endorsement of collective action tendencies and support for policies favouring the out-group via perspective taking and trust among the advantaged (n=286, Romanian) group's members using a student sample from Romania. In order to better handle the attrition and missing data and making use of the recent methodological developments, we employed multilevel modelling to analyze the data collected over three time points where each data collection point was treated at level 1 (within level) and nested in level 2 in individuals(between level). We used Mplus (Muthen & Muthen, 2009) and found evidence supporting the positive relationship between contact and endorsement of collective action benefitting the out-group via partial mediation of perspective taking and trust at both levels. Additionally, out-group trust and perspective taking were positively related with endorsement of collective action and intergroup contact. Further support was found for a negative link from ingroup identification and endorsement of collective action taken by the out-group via perspective taking across the levels. The results, policy implications and avenues for future research are discussed within the context of social change via support for structural transformation and collective action paths.
