The presentation will highlight the differences between social-change oriented vs. benevolent forms of expressing intergroup solidarity. It will present cross-sectional and experimental research as empirical support for the relevance of the distinction from the context of the 2015 and 2022 refugee crisis and solidarity with Europe's Roma people. Furthermore, the studies will also highlight that in some intergroup contexts, the distinction is blurred by a hostile normative political context.
