The Function of Norms and Values in the Construction of Social Identity in Groups who experienced intergroup Conflicts

Troi-Boeck, Nadja (June 2012). The Function of Norms and Values in the Construction of Social Identity in Groups who experienced intergroup Conflicts (Unpublished). In: Tagung des Nordic Forsk Network und der Context Group. Jäärvenpää Finnland. Juni 2012.

I present my explorative research about conflict and social identity. The Social Identity Approach of Henri Tajfel and John Turner is used as theoretical frame in the study. The main question is how the construction of social identity of group members is influenced by an inter-group conflict. The research project consists of two parts: 1. An empirical study conducted with qualitative research methods to investigate a today’s congregation of the Swiss reformed Church who experienced a conflict about twenty years ago. This conflict ended by the separation of a sub-group from the congregations. This group forms an independent community today. Members of both congregations where interviewed about the meaning which membership has for them and about their interpretation of the conflict. 2. An analysis of the Gospel of Matthew with questions who where developed out of the empirical study and the Social Identity Approach to better understand the separation conflict between the Matthean community and the synagogue.
