Our research is framed within two general lines, in which we examine:
a) the psychosocial variables that predict the perception of economic inequality and the tolerance towards it;
b) the psychosocial consequences derived from economic inequality. In addition, we also carry out studies that explore the processes related to other types of inequality, beyond economic inequality (e.g., based on social power, prejudice, dehumanization, etc.). We currently have three research grants, funded by national and international research agencies.
