Prosociality as a foundation for intergroup conflict


De Dreu, Carsten K W; Fariña, Andrea; Gross, Jörg; Romano, Angelo (2022). Prosociality as a foundation for intergroup conflict. Current Opinion in Psychology, 44:112-116.

Abstract

Intergroup conflict can be modeled as a two-level game of strategy in which prosociality can take the form of trust and cooperation within groups or between groups. We review recent work, from our own laboratory and that of others, that shows how biological and sociocultural mechanisms that promote prosocial preferences and beliefs create in-group bounded, parochial cooperation, and, sometimes, parochial competition. We show when and how parochial cooperation and competition intensify rather than mitigate intergroup conflict.
