THREATS ON SOCIAL IDENTITY AND HOSTILITY TO MIGRANTS:
RESEARCHES CENTERED ON ETHNIC MAJORITIES 

ULRICH WAGNER

 

SUMMARY

By studying the ties between immigration and the social identity of the receiving societies, the author analyzes the violence towards foreigners that appeared in Germany at the beginning of the 1990’s - the precise moment when Germany shifted to a country of immigration. Wagner views these violent reactions towards foreign persons as the effect of a vacillation in the social identity of the German population.

KEYWORDS

Violence - Immigration - Identity
