[en] sense of belonging ; migration ; Portuguese ; Luxembourg
[en] The need to belong is fundamental to human beings and constitutes a basis for subjective well-being. It is closely linked to further concepts, such as identification, connectedness, attachment, fitting in and feeling “at home”. The present contribution will focus on the sense of belonging in the context of migration in its different facets - cultural, social and spatial - and in relation to different points of reference - national, ethnic and transnational belonging. Applying the lens of cultural psychology of semiotic mediation, the development of a sense of belonging will be discussed with regard to first generation migrants and their second-generation offspring in a life span perspective, drawing on concepts such as proculturation as well as the Trajectory Equifinality Approach.
