Judi Mesman received NWO-VICI grant

NWO has awarded Judi Mesman the VICI research grant of ca. 1.5 milion Euros for a study on the parenting origins of prejudice. Children often have the same opinions and prejudices about groups of people as their parents. There are indications that parents transmit these consciously and unconsciously. However, we do not know how this transmission works exactly. In this project Mesman investigate how ethnic prejudice is (inadvertently) taught through parenting.
Expected starting date: September 2017.
