This study examined the impact of native youth’s subjective well-being on exclusionary attitudes toward immigrants, seeking to understand the relationship between subjective well-being, political distrust, and anti-immigrant attitudes over time. Using longitudinal data, we followed three cohorts of native young adults ( N = 1352; Mage = 22.72, SD =...

Background The existing literature suggests that positive parenting might serve as a protective factor against immigrant adolescents’ engagement in externalizing difficulties when they are exposed to negative experiences of ethnic derogation. To date, little is known, however, about whether different dimensions of positive parenting may moderate th...

Much prior research relies on the idea that antipathy towards immigrants is primarily driven by natives’ perceptions of the threat that immigrants represent to their economic, cultural or national well-being. Yet little is known about whether subjective well-being affects attitudes toward immigrants. This study aimed to examine whether life satisfa...

This study aimed to analyze affiliations with violent peers as an underlying mechanism that associates ethnic harassment with violent behaviors among immigrant youth ( N = 365; M age = 13.93, SD = 0.80), and also identify the risk factors in this relation. The results revealed that identification with an immigrant peer crowd at school made ethnical...

This study examined the political interest of young adults who over two years moved in or out of a romantic relationship or had a romantic partner at both ages. The sample comprised young adults in Sweden (n = 1335; Mage = 22.75, SD = 3.01). Among those who entered a romantic relationship, the partners seemed to adjust to each other’s political int...
Article
The present study aims to investigate whether support from a friend protects against the negative effects of ethnic harassment on engagement in delinquent and violent behaviors among immigrant adolescents in Sweden ( n = 365; X = 13.93, SD = .80). We found that when ethnically harassed immigrant adolescents received friend support, they were less l...
Article
In Sweden, as in many other European countries, poor neighborhoods with ethnically diverse inhabitants and high crime rates have grown up around big cities in the last decades. We hypothesized that, compared with adolescents in advantaged neighborhoods, adolescents in disadvantaged neighborhoods would perceive their schools as relatively safe, due...
Article
Contact research has well documented the beneficial effects of cross-group interactions in general, and friendship potential in particular, in promoting positive attitudes toward outgroups. Yet, most of the studies to date have mainly focused on reducing negative attitudes and prejudice. Extending emerging attempts in social and psychological resea...

Research on ethnic victimization to date has done little to identify the reasons why adolescents victimize their peers due to their ethnic background. To address this limitation, we examined: (1) the extent to which prejudiced attitudes within adolescents’ close and larger social networks determine their engagement in ethnic harassment, and (2) the...
Article
This study examined the relationship between levels of multicultural personality, the quantity and quality of intergroup contact, and positive attitudes (allophilia) toward Asian Americans among college students enrolled at a Midwestern university in the United States. Asian Americans represent the fastest growing racial/ethnic cohort in the United...

It was found that the multicultural personality dimensions, particularly cultural empathy, open-mindedness, social initiative, and flexibility, were s...

... Researchers suggest that the brain expects to establish harmonious social relations including mutual trust and interdependence. If these expectations are not met, the brain will perceive less positive resources and more stress, and increase more negative attitudes toward the external environment (62,63). Youths who perceived or experienced more enacted stigma are more likely to have a negative attitude toward the external environment. ...
... Immigrant intra-ethnic friends often share not only the same low social status but also similar experiences with intergenerational cultural challenges between the culture of origin and majority culture (Motti-Stefanidi and Masten, 2017). Thus, previous studies revealed that immigrant youth benefit from same-ethnic peers in the school context because these peers help to buffer potential intercultural strains and perceived ethnicity-based discrimination/harassment (Korol, Bayram Ö zdemir and Stattin, 2020). Ryabov (2009) similarly found that same-ethnic peers have a stronger effect on academic achievement for immigrant youths than for native youths. ...
... They play an important role in immigrant youth's lives since they support both their development and acculturation. Furthermore, they can be a safe haven for them especially if they live in disadvantaged neighborhoods which may be threatening and dangerous (Stattin, Svensson, & Korol, 2019), thus promoting their positive adaptation. The educational programs that schools adopt may have significant consequences for immigrant youth adaptation and well-being. ...
... However, another research conducted by him that positive and significant attitude towards differences is only influenced by openmindedness and social initiative (L. Korol, 2018). ...
... Additionally, higher Cultural Empathy and Social Initiative may indicate higher emotional intelligence (Ponterotto et al., 2011). Multicultural personality influences college students' attitudes toward different races (Korol et al., 2018), religious diversity (Gawali and Khattar, 2016), and international students (Ye, 2020). Multicultural personality traits help students to have intercultural abilities and multicultural effectiveness (Wu and Bodigerel-Koehler, 2013;Jičínská, 2014;Rosiers et al., 2014;Mikheeva, 2018;Olejárová et al., 2020). ...
... On the other hand, having friends with high levels of prejudice against other ethnic groups was identified to have the opposite effect. For instance, a study conducted in Sweden showed that being surrounded by prejudiced peers increases the possibility of being involved in ethnic harassment (Özdemir, Sun, Korol, Özdemir, & Stattin, 2018). Similarly, friends' tolerance predicted increased tolerance toward immigrants in another adolescent sample in Sweden (Van Zalk, Kerr, van Zalk, Stattin, 2013). ...
... Two aspects shown to have a positive impact in this context are a solution-oriented working approach, and empathy and tolerance when dealing with cultural diversity. These factors are reflected in improved treatment quality and patient satisfaction, as well as economic efficiency [9][10][11][12][13][14]. Cultural competence also has the potential to increase healthcare staff 's professional satisfaction and to protect them from perceived time pressure, stress, sleep problems or burnout [15][16][17]. ...
... These findings are based on the fact that scientific knowledge should reflect cultural, social and geographical hand, tolerance is viewed as an essential pillar for highly socialised societies with vast and divergent lifestyles and cultural habitats (33). Tolerance has been classically defined as a concept with "forbearance of others and their ideas to neo-classical versions explaining tolerance as an appreciation and acceptance of others' ideas, behaviour and beliefs" (34). Another modification of this concept implies that societies should positively accept and adopt substitute ways of feeling, thinking and acting, even though they are not considered their own (35). ...
