Federal funding for Prof. Richard Traunmüller’s research on discriminatory attitudes in the everyday life of authorities

Prof. Richard Traunmüller has received federal funding from the Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI) for his project B1.2108 “Pressure to Conform, Self-Censorship, and the Concealment of Discriminatory Attitudes in the Everyday Life of Authorities”.

The aim of the project is to provide new experimental evidence on the nature and extent of conformity pressure, self-censorship, and the concealment of discriminatory attitudes in customer-facing public agencies, and to explain these with reference to specific agency structures and cultures.

Traunmüller’s project is part of a BMI-funded joint research project on institutional racism.
