About Eran Halperin

​I'm currently a full professor of psychology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

My research uses psychological and political theories and methods to investigate different aspects of inter-group conflicts. More specifically, I am interested in widening the understanding regarding the psychological roots of some of the most destructive political ramifications of inter-group relations – e.g., intolerance, exclusion and inter-group violence and conflict.
