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.
