I am a Master-student at UiO. My research interest lie in topics such as intergroup relations, recognition experiences, self-respect and life satisfaction.
The topic for my Master-thesis is why some individuals from disadvantaged groups turn against, and kick their own group. In addition, what makes these individuals distance themselves from the ingroup, why do they do it, and what are the consequences?
Currently, I am writing a research paper on social recognition directed at individuals with physical and mental restrictions, development of self respect, and the effect this has on life satisfaction.
