Intercultural Relations in Russia

P. 34-58.

This chapter presents the results of testing of the three hypotheses of intercultural relations (multiculturalism, integration, contact hypotheses) in two regions of Russia. In the study 1, the sample included dominant group (ethnic Russians) and two groups of migrants (from South Caucasus and Central Asia) in the Central Federal district. In the study 2, the sample included dominant groups (Kabardians and Balkars in Kabardino-Balkaria and Ossetians in North Ossetia) and ethnic Russians in these republics of North Caucasus. All hypotheses were supported in the dominant ethnic groups in both regions and in migrants from Central Asia in the Central Federal district and Russian minority in North Ossetia. The contact hypothesis was not supported among migrants from the South Caucasus. The integration hypothesis was not supported among the Russian minority in Kabardino-Balkaria. The results showed that in each region the leading role in the success of mutual acculturation belongs to the majority.
