The Psychology of Inequity: Global Issues and Perspectives examines the psychological consequences of inequity beyond the borders of the United States and other western nations. Inequity does not end at national borders; it is a global problem that reflects the interdependent nature of our planetary existence. This book advances our understanding of psychological inequity as a global problem requiring global solutions.
The volume approaches its topic from many angles, moving from a discussion of the psychological concerns of specific groups—from targets of racism and sexism to the plights of migrants, refugees, and immigrants—to large scale global inequities and their psychological consequences, such as educational inequities and climate change. An excellent introduction to decolonized psychology on an international scale, this book will benefit anyone interested in learning more about promoting global equity in psychologically healthy and culturally appropriate ways.
