Displeasure at Plurality and Fear of Strangers? An Empirical Study among Youth in Germany and the Netherlands
Ziebertz, Hans-Georg; van der Tuin, Leo
Intercultural Education, v19 n1 p53-65 Feb 2008
A comparison between the Netherlands and Germany concerning religious, cultural and ethnic plurality provides interesting insights. Germany has never defined itself as a multicultural society, as was historically the case in the Netherlands. The outcomes of the research are somewhat surprising. Dutch pupils--especially boys--are more negative about plurality than their German contemporaries are. Belonging to a church in Germany appears to be connected to a positive attitude to migrants, while in the Netherlands this is not important at all. (Contains 7 tables and 1 note.)
