Universalism, conservation and attitudes toward minority groups


Beierlein, Constanze; Kuntz, Anabel; Davidov, Eldad (2016). Universalism, conservation and attitudes toward minority groups. Social Science Research, 58:68-79.

Abstract

Findings from previous studies corroborate the hypothesis that universalism and conservation values are associated with negative attitudes toward immigration. In the current study we examine whether universalism and conservation values also play a critical role in the explanation of attitudes toward other minority groups. Drawing on previous research on group-focused enmity, we explore its relations with universalism and conservation values in a German sample. Employing structural equation modeling, we find that individuals who prioritize universalism values approve of various minorities more whereas those who prioritize conservation values exhibit more disapproval.
