Cultural confrontation and social identity – The case of the German mass refugees crisis

1. Cultural confrontation: not uniform (depending on their level of interaction), but existing despite some pro-refugees claims. Not necessarily defining themselves with reference to others (Brief et al, 2005) but rather because of the presence of the other, the reference still being to their selves.

2. Social Identity: not changed, just rediscovered/reinforced ? depends how you look at it: a change exists which leads more to the conclusion of fluid collective identities rather than changing ones.
