Biography

Martyn Barrett is Emeritus Professor of Psychology at the University of Surrey, UK. He obtained his degrees from the Universities of Cambridge and Sussex. He is a developmental and social psychologist but has a strong commitment to multidisciplinary research, and is currently working with political scientists, sociologists, educationalists and policy analysts. He works on the development of intercultural competence; the development of prejudice, stereotyping and intergroup attitudes; children’s national and ethnic enculturation; the identifications and cultural practices of ethnic minority, mixed-heritage and ethnic majority individuals; and the development of political and civic attitudes, cognition, participation and active citizenship.

Recent books include Children’s Knowledge, Beliefs and Feelings about Nations and National Groups (2007, Psychology Press), Advancing Multiculturalism, Post 7/7 (2008, Cambridge Scholars Publishing), Nationalism, Ethnicity, Citizenship (2011, Cambridge Scholars Publishing), Multiculturalism and Interculturalism: Similarities and Differences (2013, Council of Europe), Developing Intercultural Competence through Education (2014, Council of Europe), and Political and Civic Engagement: Multidisciplinary Perspectives (in press, Routledge). Over the years, he has received numerous research grants from the ESRC, the European Commission, the Nuffield Foundation, the Leverhulme Trust, and various other bodies.

From 2009-2012, he led an FP7 project funded by the European Commission entitled Processes Influencing Democratic Ownership and Participation (PIDOP). He also works as an expert for the Council of Europe on the development of intercultural competence, and helped to develop the Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters (2009, Council of Europe) and Images of Others – An Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters through Visual Media (2013, Council of Europe). He is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society and an Academician of the Academy of Social Sciences.

Research Interests

My primary research interests are focused on young people, race, ethnicity and nation. In particular, my work examines:

  • The development of intercultural competence
  • The development of prejudice, stereotyping and intergroup attitudes
  • National and ethnic enculturation   
  • The identifications, cultural practices and acculturation of ethnic minority, mixed-heritage and ethnic majority individuals
  • The development of political and civic attitudes, cognition, participation and active citizenship

I am especially interested in the use of cross-national comparative studies to examine variability in the development of young people as a function of the specific social, political and national contexts in which they are living. I recently coordinated a cross-national research project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme entitled Processes Influencing Democratic Ownership and Participation (PIDOP). This project examined the processes influencing civic and political participation in nine European countries (Belgium, Czech Republic, England, Germany, Italy, Northern Ireland, Portugal, Sweden and Turkey). The project drew on the disciplines of Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Politics, Social Policy and Education, and focused on the macro-level contextual factors (including historical, political, electoral, economic and policy factors), the proximal social factors (including familial, educational and media factors) and the psychological factors (including motivational, cognitive, attitudinal and identity factors) which facilitate and/or inhibit civic and political participation. The research examined young people, women, minorities and migrants as four specific groups at risk of political disengagement, and developed a set of detailed policy recommendations for enhancing levels of participation among these groups .

In the past, I have coordinated two other cross-national research projects, the CHOONGE and NERID projects, which were funded by the European Commission and by INTAS respectively. Together, these two projects investigated the development of national and ethnic identifications, beliefs and attitudes in 6- to 15-year-old children living in England, Scotland, Catalonia, the Basque Country, Spain, Italy, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia and Azerbaijan. The main findings from these two projects are reported in my 2007 book, Children's Knowledge, Beliefs and Feelings about Nations and National Groups.

I have also been involved in a number of other research projects over recent years. One of these was a multidisciplinary project funded by The Leverhulme Trust on New Ethnicities in British Bangladeshi and Mixed-Heritage Youth (for a pdf copy of the final report, click here). The project examined patterns of national and ethnic self-categorization and identification among British Bangladeshi and mixed-heritage adolescents living in London, the cultural practices of these individuals within different situations and contexts, and their perceptions of multiculturalism, racism and discrimination.

I was also involved in a Council of Europe project in which a new educational instrument called the Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters (AIE) was developed for use within primary and secondary schools. The AIE is intended to support and encourage the development of the attitudes, skills and knowledge which are required for engaging in appropriate, effective and respectful dialogue with people from other cultural backgrounds. The AIE was piloted in sixteen countries in 2007-8, and was published by the Council of Europe in March 2009. In a follow-up project for the Council of Europe, the team has developed a second educational instrument called Images of Others – An Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters through Visual Media (AIEVM), also for use within primary and secondary schools. The AIEVM was piloted in eighteen countries in 2011-12, and published by the Council of Europe in December 2013. The AIEVM is intended to support and encourage the development of the attitudes, skills and knowledge which are required for deconstructing images of cultural others encountered in visual media such as television, cinema, the internet, magazines, newspapers, etc. I have also recently written a statement paper on intercultural competence for the European Wergeland Centre (a partner institution of the Council of Europe), co-authored a Council of Europe position paper on Developing Intercultural Competence through Education, and I am currently working on a further Council of Europe project aimed at producing an integrated description of the competences required for democratic culture and intercultural dialogue.
