The following problems seem to be of special interest to the researchers: the relationship between prejudice and other components of intergroup interactions; changes in prejudices occurring in various groups; the discovery of new factors refer- ring to prejudice; and, finally, the assessment of the effectiveness of various prejudice reduction programs.
