Abstract:

This paper investigates the relationship between interethnic contact and ethnic identity trajectories through an investigation of the Russian population in Latvia. Three possible outcomes are considered: assimilation, integration, and separation. The first indicates a cultural and political merger of two ethnic groups, the second indicates a political merger only, and the third denotes neither.
A curious result emerges: in a large-n survey conducted last year by the Baltic Institute of Social Sciences, there was no relationship between interethnic contact and a propensity to assimilate. There was, however, a strong relationship between contact and integration. Surprisingly, the exact opposite result emerged in a much smaller, but more detailed, network survey of respondents I worked with earlier this year: That is, there was a strong relationship between contact and propensity to assimilate, but no relationship between contact and integration.
