THE MIGRANTS AND THE HOST SOCIETY. THE DETERMINANTS OF THE ACCULTURATION STRATEGIES AND THE CONTACTS WITH THE RECEIVING COMMUNITY
Languages of publication
The article describes issues relating to determinants of acculturation strategies in the context of contacts between migrants and the host society. The starting point of the discussion is the presentation of selected models of adjustment strategies. The occurrence of a particular type of adaptation is determined by different factors, which can be divided into two basic groups. On one hand there are external factors, on the other, there are the migrant’s own predispositions and attitudes. Individual determinants constituting each of those groups are subjected to a detailed analysis. At the same time, a particular attention is paid to the changeable character of the interactions between the migrants and the receiving community. The coexistence of all of the above factors leads to their mutual interrelations affecting the complexity and the dynamics of the adjustment process.
