ON THE RELEVANCE OF STUDYING PATRIOTISM AND NORMATIVE CONFLICT IN CHANGING ATTITUDES TOWARDS IMMIGRANTS

Abstract : The aim is to theoretically investigate the role that patriotism may play in the persistence of discrimination. Patriotism refers to attachment to one's own country, and might lead to discrimination against individuals who are not part of the country. However democratic countries strongly promote the non-discrimination norm. Then, patriotism could present individuals with a normative conflict (i.e., conflict between one's own norm and the ingroup norm), which has been shown to have a potential for attitude change. It is argued that the norms promoted by a country interact with the patriotic orientation of their citizens, producing differential patterns of attitude change. The case of changing negative attitudes toward immigrants is discussed.
