Abstract:

We examined the mediating role of group esteem threat, group efficacy and relative deprivation in predicting collective action tendencies among members of religious and secular groups in Turkey. Using structural equation modelling, we also investigated the impact of intergroup contact and ingroup identification on collective action tendencies and support for policies favouring ingroup and outgroup via relative deprivation and group power. Among the minority secular group, intergroup contact was negatively associated with collective action tendencies (Study 1, n=267) whereas ingroup identification was strongly associated with collective action. Both paths were fully mediated by group power and relative deprivation. In study 2 (n=290), intergroup contact was positively associated with collective action and more support for policies favouring the out-group among the majority religious group. As in Study 1 ingroup identification was positively associated with collective action but negatively with policies benefitting the secular outgroup. We also found support for the moderating effect of group esteem threat on the group power to collective action path in both studies. The results are discussed as they relate to intergroup contact and collective action.
