CRONEM, 13 June 2007

introduction
Introduction
  • This study distinguishes between national and ethnic identification
  • The relationship between the two types of identification and the evaluation of in-group and multiple out-groups is examined
  • The aim is contribute to the further understanding of identification and group evaluation processes in a real-life and politically tense context.
spanish basque context
Spanish-Basque context
  • The case of interest is Basque community in Spain
  • For people who identify as Basque, Basques are seen as the in-group, and Andalusians, Catalans and Spaniards as out-groups
  • For people who identify as Spanish, the Spaniards are seen as the in-group, and Andalusians, Catalans and Basques as out-groups
theory
Theory
  • SOCIAL IDENTITY THEORY
  • Identification with a group influences intergroup behaviour
  • In-group positivity principle
  • Out-group derogation
  • Pro in-group attitudes are not necessarily related to anti out-group attitudes
  • Group evaluations need to be understood in their social context
hypotheses
Hypotheses
  • H1: A direct positive relationship between group identification and in-group evaluation
  • H2: A positive relationship between in-group identification and the evaluation of similar out-groups
  • H3: A negative relationship between in-group identification and the evaluation of threatening out-groups
    • H3a: A direct negative association between Spanish identification and the evaluation of Catalans
    • H3b: For other three groups Basque nationalism functions as a mediator between in-group identification and out-group evaluations

data and participants
Data and participants
  • 774 secondary school students from 25 schools in the Basque Autonomous Community
  • 14-21 years of age (M=16)
  • 50.9% females and 49.1% males
measures dv
Measures: DV
  • Group evaluation:

Spaniards, Basques, Andalusians and Catalans

  • Pre-test survey  37 respondents from Spain ranked Spanish sub-groups according to how prototypically Spanish they are
  • Castilians and Andalusians most prototypical; Basques and Catalans most atypical
  • No evaluation of Castilians in the data  focus on Andalusians
  • Stereotype valence: 10 positive and 10 negative traits
measures iv
Measures: IV
  • Basque identification:

6 questions measured on a scale from 1 to 4 about feeling Basque and belonging to the Basque group

  • Spanish identification:

The same 6 questions with reference to Spanish identity

measures iv 2
Measures: IV (2)
  • Basque ethnic nationalism:

8 questions, measured on a scale from 1 to 4, about wanting an independent and ethnically pure Basque state

Cronbach’s alpha=.90

analysis
Analysis
  • Structural equation modelling
  • Mplus software
  • No test of the measurement model due to the modest sample size and high alphas
  • A fair number of missing values in questions about identification and Basque nationalism Full-information maximum likelihood estimation
descriptive results
Descriptive results
  • Basque identification (M=3.31) is significantly higher than Spanish identification (M=2.11)
  • Average scores on Basque identification are significantly above the midpoint, while Spanish identification is significantly below it
  • Basques are the most positively evaluated group (M=3.09), followed by Spaniards (M=.80), Andalusians (M=.74) and Catalans (M=-.40)

conclusion
Conclusion
  • The findings show a clear positive relationship between identification and in-group evaluation, which is in line with the ‘in-group positivity principle’
  • The relationship between identification and out-group evaluation is more complex
    • There is no association between in-group identification and the evaluation of similar out-groups
    • The association is negative for threatening out-groups, and it is mediated by ideological notions, such as nationalism
conclusion 2
Conclusion (2)
  • Social psychology has paid relatively little attention to dual identities
  • Multiple out-groups rarely researched
  • Most studies are of experimental nature

 This article examined dual identities and multiple out-group evaluations in a real-life intergroup context!
