Daniel Bar-Tal is Branco Weiss Professor of Research in Child Development
and Education at the School of Education and past director of the Walter
Lebach Institute for Jewish-Arab Coexistence through Education, Tel Aviv
University. Also he serves as a Coeditor in Chief of the Palestine Israel
Journal, Director of the Walter Lebach Research Institute for Jewish-Arab
Coexistence through Education, Tel Aviv University and Co-director of the
European Summer Institute in Political Psychology.

Bar-Tal received his graduate training in social psychology at the
University of Pittsburgh, and completed his doctoral thesis in 1974. Since
the early eighties his interest has shifted to political psychology, in
which he has directed most of his attention to the beliefs shared by
collectives, studying acquisition of these beliefs, their meaning, functions
and the way they influence emotions and behaviours. Specifically, he studied
beliefs about conflict, stereotyping, delegitimisation, siege mentality,
security, patriotism and reconciliation, as well as collective emotional
orientations of fear and hope.
