Contemporary societies are increasingly diverse, and there is a vivid debate on the role that stereotypes play in interactions among members of different groups and the extent to which such stereotypes translate into prejudice and discrimination. What role do stereotypes play in individual decisions? Are they malleable? This lecture addresses these questions, discussing two ways of changing stereotypes: through social interaction, and by making people aware of their biases.
