Lab 2016.jpg

 

The Esses Lab for the Study of Intergroup Relations at The University of Western Ontario studies a variety of topics of immediate interest in today’s globalized society. Our primary research interests include immigration and cultural diversity; ethnic relations; national identity and belonging; stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination; and dehumanization. The researchers in our lab aim to understand and facilitate more productive interactions between groups through laboratory and field research. Our research is funded by grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, including Insight Research Grants, a Community-University Research Alliance (CURA) Grant, and a Partnership Grant; and contracts and contribution agreements with¬†Immigration, Refugees and¬†Citizenship Canada, provincial and municipal government departments, and NGOs.
