Organisation profile:

Social and cultural psychology studies how people interactand how they think and feel about one another and about the world, both as individuals and as groups. It starts from the premise that all behavior is contextualized, and conversely, that individuals' and groups' behaviors constitute the social and cultural landscape. Our research spans a wide range of different methods and contexts, varying from controlled laboratory experiments that provide insight into the effects of specific contexts on psychological functioning , to real-life research in schools, organisations, and the society as a whole.
