This symposium aims at bringing together research from different perspectives on promotion of inclusiveness and reduction of prejudice held by majority adolescents towards minorities. Taking a developmental perspective, Klimstra and colleagues analysed the role of extremist attitudes in terms of high social dominance orientation and right-wing authoritarianism on identity formation processes. They found that relative increases in social dominance orientation were significantly correlated with changes toward a relatively more negative identity, and that social dominance orientation predicted negative relative changes in identity. From a social-cognitive perspective, Albarello and colleagues considered how individual and cognitive factors affect prejudice towards migrants and social inclusiveness. They found that social dominance orientation was longitudinally and positively associated with prejudice, whereas multiple categorization (the ability to recognize migrants’ multiple belongingness) was negatively associated with it. Importantly, these effects on adolescents’ social inclusiveness were mediated by prejudice. Bayram Özdemir and colleagues examined the change of adolescents’ attitudes toward immigrants and whether school context (friends’ views about immigrants; cooperative and socially cohesive classroom environment) play a role in the development of positive attitudes. They found that adolescents who decreased their positive view of immigrants and those who maintained a negative view had friends with less positive attitudes toward immigrants and also perceived their classroom environment as less cooperative and socially cohesive. The contribution by Johnson focused on White majority adolescents and their tendency to endorse life goals related to reducing societal inequalities (helping goals; social justice goals), compared to Black minority adolescents. Her evidence suggests that White adolescents endorse social justice goals to a lower extent than Blacks. Differences were not fund for most of general helping goals. Overall, these contributions shed new light on factors associated with development of prejudice towards minorities in adolescence.
