Ethnic in-Group Evaluation and Adhesion to Acculturation Ideologies: The Case of Moroccan Immigrants in France

Abstract : The aim of this research was to examine the link between adhesion to different accul-turation ideologies (multiculturalism, citizenship, secularism and assimilation) and groupevaluation among Moroccan immigrants in France. We present two studies. In the firststudy, we found a negative correlation between adhesion to assimilation or secularism andin-group liking: the more immigrants preferred these ideologies, the less they displayeda positive evaluation of Moroccan people. No significant correlation was noticed betweencitizenship or multiculturalism and in-group liking. In contrast, adhesion to each one of theacculturation ideologies correlated positively with out-group liking. In the second study,we experimentally manipulated the acculturation ideologies and we showed that in-groupliking was lower in assimilation and secularism conditions compared to citizenship andmulticulturalism conditions. Out-group liking did not differ as a function of the accultur-ation ideology. The effect of acculturation ideologies on group evaluations was mediatedby perception of the legitimacy of the acculturation ideologies. We discuss these results interms of individual mobility.
