Improving Gender and Immigrant Outcomes through the Social Malleability of Attitudes: Randomized Interventions on Peer Interactions in an Educational Setting

Project description

Peer interactions and their role in shaping children's beliefs on inclusivity

Schools play a role in the way children's beliefs, attitudes and opinions are shaped. Social interactions with other children are also paramount. The EU-funded SOCIALMALLEABILITY project aims to study those interactions to understand the influence they may have on the formation of children’s beliefs regarding equality and integration. In this scope, the methodology of the project will be based on questionnaires that will be distributed in schools in Istanbul. Moreover, neural measurements will be performed on children. Eventually, the project will provide inputs on how the educational environment can be designed to build a culture promoting gender equality and positive attitudes towards immigrants.
