Julia C. Becker

Julia C. Becker obtained her PhD from Philipps University, Marburg in Germany and has been Professor of Social Psychology at Osnabrueck University since 2013. Her main research interests focus on ways to explain why disadvantaged group members tolerate societal systems that produce social and economic inequality and how legitimizing ideologies help to maintain unequal status relations. Building on this, she is interested in people’s motivation to engage in activism for social change.
