An Eclectic Model of Intergroup Conflict

  • Ronald J. Fisher
Part of the Springer Series in Social Psychology book series (SSSOC)


The purpose of this chapter is to work toward the development of an eclectic model of intergroup conflict by drawing on the classic contributions and contemporary work discussed in the preceding three chapters. In particular, an attempt will be made to develop a dynamic model of intergroup conflict with a focus on the processes of escalation, which transform a low intensity conflict into a high intensity one.
