Tittel

Islamic terrorism, out-group trust and the motivation to control

Sammendrag

In this article we use survey experiments from a Norwegian population study (N=1512) to examine the relationship between terror threat and out-group trust, focusing on the effects of the motivation to control prejudice and of emotional responses to a hypothetical terror threat. In the survey, respondents were exposed to a news story that described an ISIS threat scenario, involving a specific terrorist threat against public buildings in Oslo. We analyze how the terror threat scenario affects the respondents’ trust in Muslims in general and whether the effect of the threat is contingent on their motivation to control prejudice and on the emotions generated by the news story. The analysis shows that contrary to expectations, exposure to the news story makes respondents report higher levels of trust in Muslims. Motivation to control prejudice has a strong positive effect on trust, and the effect is stronger with the respondents who get most scared by the news story.
