———————————–
We are currently researching ways to promote inclusive peacebuilding among primary school children living in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. We want to explore how children’s individual traits (empathy, attitudes, self-efficacy) and family influences (social identity, cultural socialization) relate to their helping and sharing behaviors towards children from different groups, including those from different geographical regions (North/South), nationalities (Irish/British), community backgrounds (Protestant/Catholic) and under-researched minority ethnic groups (Travellers, Refugees).

We’d like to invite kids ages 7-11 to play a series of games and answer a few questions in a 15-minute Zoom session with a trained research assistant. You will accompany your child on this virtual encounter and no identifying information will be collected during any of the games. We would just like to know what your child thinks of different symbols and images and what he thinks of children from other ethnic groups. Participating parents will also be asked to complete a short questionnaire about themselves and their child to allow us to further explore how individual factors and family transmission influence children’s behaviors.

There are no right or wrong answers to any of the games, and at the end you can submit your email address to receive a €5 National Pound Token. You will also have the option to print a personalized child science certificate for your child!
We would be extremely grateful if parents/guardians allow their child to participate in this study. If you’re interested, all you need to do is follow the link below to our consent form for more information and to schedule a Zoom meeting time that works best for you and your child. :
