The aim of this study was to look into potential differences between young Bosniaks and Croats from Mostar in some aspects of intergroup relations and to explore the role of the Revised Integrated Threat Theory and Sociofunctional Threat-based Approach to Prejudice in predicting intergroup rapprochement. The study was done with 313 Bosniak and Croat students from two Mostar gymnasiums. The results showed that young Bosniaks and Croats differ in intergroup relations, where Bosniaks perceive higher realistic and symbolic threat, higher level of negative intergroup emotions, report higher intergroup contact, but lower level of intergroup rapprochement than Croats. The results of regression analysis showed that symbolic threat and general threat are significant predictors of intergroup rapprochement, but realistic threat and intergroup emotions were not. The two models of intergroup threat show similarly low efficacy in predicting intergroup rapprochement, with an important note that Sociofunctional Threat-based Approach to Prejudice did not prove valid in this context.
