Surveying the landscape of immigration: social psychological perspectives (pages 421-431)


Three general themes are introduced to illustrate the kinds of social psychological issues that the study of immigration raises. The first issue concerns the possible bases of social comparison that members of immigrant groups use. The second topic deals with the negotiation of multiple identities, as members of immigrant groups consider which ethnic identities they wish to claim and how those choices are manifested. Third, the context of immigration and identity negotiation is discussed, underlining the importance that other people and institutions play in the immigrants experience.
