Удовлетворенность жизнью, гражданская идентичность и аккультурационные ожидания принимающего населения Москвы

 

This paper is devoted the role of civic identity in ethnic diversity acceptance and acculturation
expectations of the host population. We place special focus on the level of life satisfaction of the host
population as we expect it to moderate the relationship between civic identity and attitudes towards ethnic
diversity and migrants. The study involved 219 representatives of the host population Moscow (66 males and
153 females, from 16 to 68 years old, average age – 28,5 years) which were born or living in Moscow for
more than 10 years. The results of multigroup path analysis show that among host population representatives
with a low level of life satisfaction civic identity is negatively related to a positive attitude towards ethnic
diversity. While among host population representatives with a high level of life satisfaction civic identity
is not associated with a positive attitude towards ethnic diversity. Besides, that we found that attitudes
towards ethnic diversity, mediate the relationship between civic identity and acculturation expectations
among representatives of the host population with a low level of life satisfaction. The results of the study
underscore the importance of taking into account the well-being of people when studying their relations
with members of other cultural groups.
