Youth can play a central role in promoting positive intergroup relations and tackling social inequalities in conflict and divided societies. The peacebuilding potential of youth, however, remains relatively under-explored in the research literature on social change and collective action.

Drawing on theoretical models including the empathy-attitudes-action model, social identity theory and intergroup contact theory, I will present an ongoing programme of research that focuses on understanding more about how, when, and why youth engage in or demonstrate positive intentions towards constructive actions- at the interpersonal, collective, and structural levels. In doing so, I consider the importance of individual and contextual factors in promoting constructive action amongst youth as well as reflect on the implications of this research for current scientific understanding and practice.
