Our central focus in this project is on the kinds of contact situations behind the formation of particular societal contexts which define the kinds of social interaction which take place within them, varying in their levels of colonialism or negative migrant/indigenous contact. We have explored these factors and their varying impact within a particular society, highlighting different kinds of formative contact situations, ranging from low to high colonialism; this section of our analysis applies this perspective to an analysis of intergroup relations on a worldwide basis, ranging from low to high levels of colonialism and differentiated by general levels of intergroup conflict.
