Relations Between Individual-Level Social Capital, Perceived Threat and Acculturation Expectations of Host Population
Applied Social Psychology
This research is made to outline the connections between the individual levels of a social capital with acculturational expectations of the host population. The social capital can be regarded at 3 levels: macro – the level of society, mezzo – the level of organizations and micro – the individual level. In this study there was a justification of the supposition that the individual level of social capital is related to the acculturational expectations of the host population, where the mediator of that connection appears to be the perceived threat to migrants. The people who were taken into consideration were the Russian citizens of Moscow (N = 111). It was revealed that the individual level of social capital is related to the preferable acculturation expectations to the society through the perceived threat as a mediator of this correlation.
