Timothy Maurice speaks to Salma Mousa, PhD about social cohesion under challenging circumstances. They explore two of her papers where she shares data and insights into how footballers impact prejudice, and what happened when Christians and Muslims were put on the same soccer team in post-ISIS Iraq. The conversation is delightful and insightful, and at the end they explore practical ways to design spaces and contact to reduce prejudice in your workplace and communities.
