Abstract: Previous research on racially biased portrayals of minorities in the news has so far concentrated on assessing the impact of news coverage on evaluations of outgroups among members of the ingroup. Drawing from findings in social psychology, we argue that media coverage on outgroups should also lead to effects on ingroup evaluation. In an experiment we, therefore, investigate the impact of positive and negative news portrayals of Russians in Switzerland as an outgroup on attitudes toward that group and attitudes toward the ingroup (i.e., the Swiss). The results indicate that negative outgroup depictions in the news increase outgroup devaluation while positive portrayals of the outgroup improve the image of the social group. Additionally, negative and positive portrayals of Russians boost ingroup attitudes as compared to a control group. The findings are discussed against the background of intergroup relations theories.

Abstract: Whereas research on helping over the past four decades has focused primarily on help giving between individuals and its consequences (Penner, Dovidio, Piliavin, & Schroeder, 2005), recent research on helping has considered the role of the group membership in these processes (Halabi & Nadler, 2009; Levine & Crowther, 2008; Nadler & Halabi, 2006; Stürmer, Snyder, & Omoto, 2005). The present research, consisting of three studies of Arabs’ and Israeli Jews responses, examined helping relations as an intergroup phenomenon and explored how even prosocial actions, such as intergroup assistance, can elicit negative reactions that can escalate conflict between the groups. Specifically, we explored how high and low status groups perceive offers of help from the high to the low status group, and how perceptions of status security (i.e., legitimacy and stability of hierarchy) affect interpretations of members of the low status group. As predicted on the basis of the Intergroup Helping as Status Relations Model, Israeli Arabs viewed help by Israeli Jews more negatively than did Israeli Jews (Study 1), and, consistent with Social Identity Theory, more negatively when they perceived group status relations as less secure (Study 2). Study 3 further demonstrated, when the offer of assistance followed a trustworthy apology by a representative of the high status group, help by Israeli Jews was more positively perceived by Israeli Arabs. Theoretical and applied implications are discussed.

Abstract: Intergroup contact is among the most effective ways to improve intergroup attitudes. Specifically, it has been shown that contact exerts its effects on prejudice reduction mostly by inducing positive affective processes and increasing outgroup knowledge. The present study (N=146) investigated whether stereotype content enhancement along the dimensions of competence, sociability, and morality might represent a key cognitive factor mediating the effect of contact on outgroup attitudes. Results revealed that face-to-face encounters with immigrants increased their perceived competence, sociability, and morality. However, only increased perceived outgroup morality mediated the effect of contact on outgroup responses. These results extend and complement prior work that has considered general outgroup knowledge as a key cognitive factor driving the contact effects, by taking into account specific content dimensions describing outgroups. The importance of these findings for improving intergroup relations is discussed.
