Hierarchy in the eye of the beholder

Debate surrounding the issue of inequality and hierarchy between social groups has become increasingly prominent in recent years. At the same time, individuals disagree about the extent to which inequality between advantaged and disadvantaged groups exists. Whereas prior work has examined the ways in which individuals legitimize (or delegitimize) inequality as a function of their motivations, Jennifer Sheehy-Skeffington, Assistant Professor of Social Psychology London School of Economics and Political Science, considers whether individuals’ orientation toward group-based hierarchy motivates the extent to which they perceive inequality between social groups in the first place.
