"The Development of Tolerance and Xenophobia in Emerging Adulthood: The Role of Personal and Social Factors"


The global immigration crisis is reshaping the face of many countries where increasing cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity is becoming an inevitable reality. Yet, despite the significant benefits brought out by such diversity, xenophobia and anti-immigrant sentiments are alarming growing among native population. Recent elections in countries like Germany, Italy, and USA have well demonstrated that hard nationalist parties are gaining much of their electoral support in policies that views immigration as economic, cultural, and social threats. Such hostile and anti-immigrant moods jeopardize harmonious integration of newcomers and, thus, might have deleterious consequences for the well-being, cohesion, and future prospects of the immigrant-receiving countries. The presentation aims to gain deeper insight into personal and social factors that might impact the development of tolerance and xenophobia in emerging adulthood. Using cross-sectional and longitudinal evidence, the presentation intends to focus on processes that underlie the formation of these related but independent inter-ethnic attitudes.
