social identity theory
Tajfel beleived that were in-groups and out-groups. The in-group the one we are alreay in, and the out-group being the other group. Tajel called this social categorisation.
The groups that we belong to give us our social identity:a sense of belonging in the social world.
Tajfel's explanation ha considered prejudice as being due to competition that exists between various groups in society.
