Our 2015 Annual Meeting will be held July 3-6, 2015 in San Diego, California (USA) at the Omni San Diego Hotel.

Conference Theme: The Psychology of Encounter and the Politics of Engagement

Program Co-chairs: Melinda Jackson (San Jose State University, USA) and Clifford Stevenson (Queen's University Belfast, Northern Ireland)

Among the central challenges facing communities, nations, and the global community in recent years has been the growing tendency towa rd patterns of social and political exclusion, the building of barriers and the enforcement of borders, stigmatization and segregation of minorities, breakdowns in communication among diverse peoples, and the construction of parallel societies. Among other consequences, these trends have conditioned psychological stress and intergroup conflict. The disciplines of psychology and political science have generated research findings and stimulated new thinking that promise to address these challenges. The confer ence will generate a forum in which to consider the political psychology of integration, contact, dialogue, recognition, care, ethical responsibility, political mobilization and participation as well as the fostering of positive community relations.
