Boaz Hameiri

Boaz is a PhD student in the field of Psychology at Tel Aviv University. His research focuses on intergroup conflicts, socio-psychological barriers to peace-making, and the means to change conflict-supportive attitudes in order to end these conflicts as peacefully as possible. Boaz is working to develop psychological interventions which are based on the paradigm of 'paradoxical thinking', and thus contribute to the existing knowledge on attitude change and persuasion. He hopes this will lead to new interventions that can be applied in cases of intractable conflicts such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
