EHRC report: ‘Processes of prejudice’

‘Processes of prejudice: Theory, evidence and intervention’ was published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) in Spring 2010.

The report is by Dominic Abrams (University of Kent) and is EHRC Research Report no. 56. It reviews current knowledge about prejudice: what it is, how it might be measured and how it might be reduced. Focusing specifically on the equality groups set out in the Equality Act 2006, the report examines perceptions of different groups within society; the psychological bases for prejudice; how prejudice is expressed, and the effects of experience. It also examines survey questions that seek to measure prejudice towards people from different equality groups and highlights areas where appropriate questions have yet to be developed.
