Global, Local and Interpersonal Inequalities (GLII)

This research project examines 4-to 12-year-old children’s developing understanding of group-based resource inequalities with cross-cultural samples from Mexico, Nepal, Switzerland, Germany, and the United States. Specifically, this project explores how children’s perceptions of resource inequalities differ based on their perspective within the inequality (advantaged/disadvantaged), the proximity of the inequality (local/global), and the level of inequality (interpersonal/intergroup). Furthermore, we are interested in offering novel insights into how children’s understanding of equity and fairness in resource inequality contexts differs across cultures. More data collection sites (e.g., Portugal, Gambia, Chile, and Argentina) will be added if feasible.
