Prof. dr. S. (Sabine) Otten


Sabine Otten is Professor of Intergroup Relations and Social Integration within the Social Psychology Department of the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences at the University of Groningen. She received her PhD in 1991 from the University of Münster (Germany) and did her “habilitation” in Psychology (qualification to be eligible as full professor) in 2001 at the University of Jena (Germany). Since 2002, she is working at the University of Groningen. In her research, she has focused on aggression in intra- and intergroup contexts and the links between the individual self and ingroup favouritism.

More recently, she has investigated diversity in organizational settings (including higher education) and the determinants of psychological inclusion in settings involving majority and minority group members. In this context, she is currently co-supervising a PhD-project within SCOOP on the inclusion of sexual minority members at work.
