The research has included 370 participants from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia and Montenegro. The questionnaire that was used was taken from prof. Worchel's study but only parts of it have been processed in this research. The goal of this research was to investigate whether people who attended peace camps differentiate on various measures from people that didn't attend the peace camp. The results have shown that two groups of participants (those who did and those who didn't attend the peace camps) are statistically significantly different when it comes to identification with their own ethnic group (there was greater identification among those who didn't participated in the camps) and that they differ in the perception of the other's group homogenity (those who didn't participate in the camps see it as more homogenous). However, there are no differences when it comes to perception of own group homogenity. Also, the results have shown that there is no difference in perceiving the cause of the war (except on the cause of lack of communication and education which is given more significance by those who participated in the camp) between those two groups of participants. They differ in statements: "My ethnic group has suffered more than the other group in this conflict" and "I strongly support the position my group has taken in this conflict" where in both statements those who did not participate in the camps express stronger concordance. Furthermore, the results have shown that these two groups of participants differ when it comes to expressing negative attitudes towards another ethnic group (those who did not participate in the camps express more negative attitudes). Another difference is the willingness to accept other ethnic groups (those who attended the camps are more willing to accept other ethnic groups).
