Abstract
The current study examined factors that contribute to negative intergroup interactions.

The current study examined factors that contribute to negative intergroup interactions. More specifically, the present study examines whether ethno-cultural empathy affects people’s beliefs and motivations regarding interactions with refugees/asylum seekers, hypothesizing that (1) internal motivation to respond without prejudice, rather than external motivation is a better ethno-cultural empathy predictor, (2) social dominance orientation is associated with social intergroup anxiety levels via internal and external motivation to respond without prejudice and (3) the association between social dominance orientation and social intergroup anxiety is mediated by levels via ethno-cultural empathy. The results showed that internal motivation to respond without prejudice was a better significant predictor of levels of ethno-cultural empathy, than external motivation to respond without prejudice. Furthermore, internal motivation to respond without prejudice significantly mediated the relationship between social dominance orientation and social intergroup anxiety. However, contrary to the hypothesis, external motivation to respond without prejudice was not a significant mediator. The final results suggested that ethno-cultural empathy significant mediate the relationship between social dominance orientation and social intergroup anxiety. (Less)
