ABSTRACT
Being excluded or rejected probably ranks among the most unpleasant and painful of human experiences. Nevertheless, exclusion is also an inevitable part of social life and some groups (e.g., ethnic minority group members) may encounter disapproval and rejection on a regular basis. In the present talk, I will present various studies that tried to gain more insight in how ethnic minority members respond to being discriminated against or excluded. When do experiences with discrimination or exclusion negatively impact their psychological well-being? And can such experiences also be a precursor to polarization and religious radicalization among ethnic minorities?
