Migration is one of the most intensively discussed topics in almost every media in Europe today yet the phenomenon is not a new one. This book provides researchers, students, and other interested readers with a timely and multidisciplinary perspective to the research on immigration and intercultural encounters. The volume aims at enriching the understanding of these phenomena in three different ways. For first, it seeks for a better conceptualization of identity, intergroup relations, and acculturation as dynamic and contextual processes. The second goal is to present different methodological solutions for capturing these processes. Finally, ways to promote positive intergroup relations in society are discussed.
