THREATS ON SOCIAL IDENTITY AND HOSTILITY TO MIGRANTS:
By studying the ties between immigration and the social identity of the receiving societies, the author analyzes the violence towards foreigners that appeared in Germany at the beginning of the 1990’s - the precise moment when Germany shifted to a country of immigration. Wagner views these violent reactions towards foreign persons as the effect of a vacillation in the social identity of the German population.

Ulrich WAGNER is a psychologist and a professor at the University of Marburg, Germany.
