How beliefs about others' social identification shape behaviour (2018–2021)

Abstract:
This project seeks to examine how people¿s behaviour is influenced by their beliefs about the social identification of other group members ¿ that is, by meta-identification. Using a multi-method approach, this project aims to generate new knowledge about the determinants of key group behaviours including helping, motivation, and group performance. Anticipated outcomes will advance Australia¿s world-leading research on social identity and group behaviour. As well as providing scientific leadership in this area, the proposed research will provide the foundations for practical interventions for groups, organisations, and industry that seek to improve group functioning and performance.
