– IC Functions: such as emphasizing status differentials, maintaining power, expressing hate, hostility, or aggression, or negotiating intergroup common goals.

– IC Contexts: such as extremism and terrorism, reconciliation, inter-religion dialogue, gender identity, migration, new political social movements, online communities, fair language.

– IC Means and Tools: verbal, such as linguistic biases, public discourse, metaphors, humour and jokes, and non-verbal, such as mimicry, dressing styles, facial appearance, dance, music, imagined interactions.
