Acculturation as an interactive, intergroup process: Migrants‘ and non-migrants’ acculturation goals, acculturation goal perceptions and their discrepancies as predictors of attitudes towards outgroups

Abstract:

Acculturation processes and intercultural relations are dynamic intergroup phenomena. Building on this notion, Interactive Models of Acculturation posit that the quality of intergroup relations between culturally different groups depends on the degree of discrepancy between their acculturation goals. Higher discrepancies are assumed to lead to more problematic intergroup relations. This assumption was tested in a two-wave longitudinal survey study with N = 435 participants (N = 358 with a migration background). Their perceptions of discrepancies between their own acculturation goals and their assumptions about the other group’s acculturation goals were related to their prejudice towards the other group. Cross-sectionally, support for the underlying hypothesis was found: Higher acculturation goal discrepancies were positively related to prejudice. However, the longitudinal analyses revealed that prejudice against the respective out-group is a predictor rather than an outcome of perceived acculturation goal discrepancies. Implications regarding acculturation theory and practical suggestions for the harmonization of intercultural and intergroup relations are discussed.
