Example text

Tajfel (1978) expressed some doubt as to the existence of a completely secure social identity, as such an identity would imply a relationship between two or more groups in which a change in their relative positions in society is inconceivable. For a low status group this would imply total consensus about the nature and future of their societal position, which, according to Tajfel, is nearly an empirical impossibility. In the model shown in Table 1, Tajfel attempted to systematize instances of insecure social identity and predict behaviours which would arise from them.

Security measures against left wing, anti-apartheid organizations and persons reached a peak in 1985, a year of intergroup violence which culminated in the declaration of a national state of emergency in August. During this state of emergency, the police had wide-ranging powers of action against whomever they perceived as constituting a danger to the security of the state. Within this context of national emergency, Afrikaner dissidents, shunning publicity and realistically fearing persecution for their beliefs, thus proved to be a very inaccessible population.

While a minority of respondents grew up in an urban environment and/or were exposed to intergroup contact at an early age, most respondents spent their early years in either rural or small town environments.
