[en] Migration is an important issue nowadays even more so in the light of the growing antimigrant attitudes we are currently witnessing all over the world. Luxemburg’s history, as many other countries, is also shaped by important migration waves as well as a growing national consciousness. It is therefore crucial to delve deeper into the way foreigners are perceived by natives in countries with dense immigrant populations. In the present study, we will have a closer look on the perceived threat from Luxembourgish natives’ viewpoint (N = 227; Mage = 37.2, SD = 14.9; range: 16-74; 59% of girls) regarding immigrants in general that could in a long-term perspective favour hostile attitudes towards foreigners. First analyses have showed that commitment to the own national identity, sense of security, satisfaction with current life and a higher proportion of non-Luxembourgish individuals within the circle of friends and own family are related with a lower perceived threat.
