Prof. Taylor is conducting laboratory and field research in the area of intergroup relations. Of particular interest are the conditions under which members of a disadvantaged group will accept their situation, take individual action, or instigate collective action. Current research focuses on refugees in Canada, racial groups in urban centres in Canada and the United States, South Africa and Indonesia and aboriginal groups such as the Inuit of Arctic Quebec and the Mohawks.
