[en] And the winner is … comparative studies of the attitude towards multiculturalism in Luxembourg
Even within a globalizing world Luxembourg takes an exceptional position with a foreign population of 44 %, rising to 68 % in the capital and in terms of its demographic composition, Luxembourg can be considered as truly multicultural. In a series of four quantitative studies we assessed the attitude towards multiculturalism using the Multicultural Ideology Scale (MIS). The scale was administered to adolescents at two different secondary schools in Luxembourg with different student populations: a comprehensive State school (N = 225, average age M = 15.9, SD = 1.2) which has students coming from a wide range of backgrounds, and the European School of Luxembourg (N = 204, average age M =15.2, SD = 0.8) which has many students whose parents work for one of the European Institutions. In a third study an online survey was predominantly, but not exclusively, completed by a student population (N = 640, average age M = 24.6, SD = 0.9) and finally, a survey was conducted among a large Luxembourg employer with a cross-section of a mainly native-born workforce (N = 507, average age M = 42, SD = 10). Findings show across all samples that the idea of multiculturalism is generally endorsed, but to a different degree. Factors influencing the level of endorsement will be presented and implications discussed for increasingly diverse societies.
