Understanding the psychological processes involved in the demobilizing effects of positive cross-group contact

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (6):447-448 (2012)

A theoretical framework is required that explains why and how cross-group contact reduces collective action and how the demobilizing effects can be counteracted. We propose that at least two mechanisms are involved: an affective process whereby the positive affect created offsets negative emotions and action tendencies, and a more strategic process whereby individual advancement comes to seem like a possibility
