Radio report on empathy research

The sympathy for the war in Ukraine and the willingness to help the refugees is immense. At the same time, the question arises as to why this ongoing sympathy and empathy was not also observed in other crises and refugee movements. Luca Rehse-Knauf from Deutschlandfunk interviewed me about my research in the field of empathy.

I was further interviewed by NDR Kultur concerning empathy: When does it lead to prosocial behavior and why is it dangerous to not feel empathy for members of the outgroup?  The interview can be found here.
