Voice of UYA - Borja Martinovic on Nativism and Sociology of Intergroup Prejudices
With the current political climate persisting and war and climate refugees reaching record high numbers, a fundamental discussion on the rights of immigrants and natives is hard to avoid. This area of sociology is a main topic of research for Borja Martinovic, associate professor at the Department of Interdisciplinary Social Science/Ercomer at Utrecht University. She has gathered ample empirical evidence on intergroup attitudes in western societies.
