This research aims at analysing the relation between sense of community and both subtle and blatant prejudice in different territorial areas characterised by a high versus low presence of foreign immigrants in two Italian towns (Milan-Naples). We set up a study where we test a model including the following constructs: the psychological sense of community referred to the neighbourhood which includes 4 dimensions (membership, integration/fulfilment of needs, influence, shared emotional connection), levels of subtle and blatant prejudice towards foreign immigrants, acculturation strategies (HCSA) and social trust. The role exerted by the following variables is also assessed: frequency and type of intergroup contact, length of residence, political orientation, sociodemographic variables.

Abstract

This research aims at analysing the relation between sense of community and both subtle and blatant prejudice in different territorial areas characterised by a high versus low presence of foreign immigrants in two Italian towns (Milan-Naples). We set up a study where we test a model including the following constructs: the psychological sense of community referred to the neighbourhood which includes 4 dimensions (membership, integration/fulfilment of needs, influence, shared emotional connection), levels of subtle and blatant prejudice towards foreign immigrants, acculturation strategies (HCSA) and social trust. The role exerted by the following variables is also assessed: frequency and type of intergroup contact, length of residence, political orientation, sociodemographic variables.
