[en] Increased migration has led to the formation of culturally diverse societies in most places around the world. Consequently, individuals of different ethnic backgrounds need to find ways of living together. Multiculturalism as an ideology and policy framework proposes several strategies to deal with increasing diversity and to improve intergroup relations in multicultural contexts. Berry (2016) emphasizes two important aspects of multiculturalism: a) diversity, the presence of ethnocultural diversity in the population and b) equity, the right for equal participation of all cultural groups in the society. Both diversity and equity are necessary conditions for the success of multicultural policies. Culturally heterogeneous communities that do not support inclusion and equitable participation of all groups, face the negative consequences of segregation.
In line with this notion, an international research consortium developed a revised version of the Multicultural Ideology Scale (Berry & Kalin, 1995) to assess support for cultural diversity. The scale aims to distinguish various attitudinal dimensions of multiculturalism, relevant to the acceptance and social inclusion of different ethnocultural groups: Cultural Maintenance, Equity/Inclusion, Social interaction, Essentialistic Boundaries, Extent of Differences, and Conflictual Relations. The present study is part of this cross-cultural research project, which aims to develop and test the psychometric properties of the scale in different language versions and cultural contexts. The survey will be administered to a large sample of native German citizens with different demographic characteristics. We aim to understand the attitude of native citizens towards cultural diversity and their willingness to interact with members of ethnic minority groups. We will also investigate the relationship between multicultural attitudes and individual difference variables, such as ethnic group attachment and social dominance orientation. Findings from all the country studies in the project will enable us develop a universal measure of multicultural attitudes that can be applied in multiple groups and contexts.
