The purpose of this intervention was to investigate the effectiveness of
Mutual Intergroup Differentiation Model on altering youth groups’
intergroup enmity in the context of East Timor.
The model encourages groups working together in a complementary fashion
by recognizing and valuing mutual parties within the context of an
interdependent cooperative task or common, superordinate goals.
Participants consisted of members of Taibesi and Becora youth groups
which have long history of violent conflict. The intervention lasted for
eight consecutive days and its primary measures were semi-structured
interviews and observation. Findings indicated that mutual intergroup
differentiation model worked on the platform of trust, interactive
problem solving, and superordinate goals in mixed-member groups.
