Organization profile: Post-conflict Research Centre (PCRC) is a non-government organization whose mission is to cultivate an environment for sustainable peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and the greater Balkans region using creative multimedia projects and scientific research that foster tolerance, moral courage, mutual understanding, and positive change. More broadly, PCRC is committed to fostering a society where diversity is a basis for prosperity rather than a source of conflict and where human rights are respected. Together with Professor Sabina Cehajic-Clancy, it conducts various research projects in the field of intergroup reconciliation, most recently “Ordinary Heroes.”
Internship description: The students will work with Sabina Cehajic-Clancy, Fulbright Scholar at Stanford 2014 -2015 and Associate Professor of Social Psychology, Stockholm University on research projects conducted in collaboration with PCRC based in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina). Projects relate to social functions of morality for intergroup relations. In particular, we examine usage of moral exemplars (moral representations of social groups) using different multi-media tools (e.g., film, photography etc.) on intergroup reconciliation process (e.g., forgiveness, trust, positive emotions, behavioral measures).
We also encourage students to formulate their own research questions prior to the internship. Students with their own research projects will benefit the most from this research experience.
