Affirmative Action (AA) is a debated topic in many fields of study; however, psychology and juridical research have paid major attention. AA consists of a body of policies and procedures aimed at eliminating discrimination at work against women and ethnic minorities, and repairing the effects of discrimination suffered in the past (Kravitz et al., 1997, p. Vii cited by Kovacs et al., 2014). However, in a wider sense, it can include all policies and actions to promote opportunities for disadvantaged (or minority) groups to give them equal access as the majority population within a society (e.g., Sowell, 2004). Indeed, AA is often adopted by governments and educational institutions to ensure that those groups within a society are able to take all the opportunities offered, including promotional, educational, and training ones.

Abstract

Affirmative Action (AA) is a debated topic in many fields of study; however, psychology and juridical research have paid major attention. AA consists of a body of policies and procedures aimed at eliminating discrimination at work against women and ethnic minorities, and repairing the effects of discrimination suffered in the past (Kravitz et al., 1997, p. Vii cited by Kovacs et al., 2014). However, in a wider sense, it can include all policies and actions to promote opportunities for disadvantaged (or minority) groups to give them equal access as the majority population within a society (e.g., Sowell, 2004). Indeed, AA is often adopted by governments and educational institutions to ensure that those groups within a society are able to take all the opportunities offered, including promotional, educational, and training ones.
