This study examines acculturation perceptions and preferences in peripheral and central life areas in immigrant and host adolescents from Italy (N = 359) and Spain (N = 295), using a questionnaire based on the Relative Acculturation Extended Model by Navas et al. Results showed a discrepancy between immigrant and host participants’ perspectives in both countries: immigrant participants practice and prefer to maintain their original culture in central areas but to adopt the host culture in peripheral ones; host participants perceive immigrants to maintain their original culture but would prefer them to adopt the host culture, in both domains.

Abstract

This study examines acculturation perceptions and preferences in peripheral and central life areas in immigrant and host adolescents from Italy (N = 359) and Spain (N = 295), using a questionnaire based on the Relative Acculturation Extended Model by Navas et al. Results showed a discrepancy between immigrant and host participants’ perspectives in both countries: immigrant participants practice and prefer to maintain their original culture in central areas but to adopt the host culture in peripheral ones; host participants perceive immigrants to maintain their original culture but would prefer them to adopt the host culture, in both domains. Implications for intercultural relationships are discussed.
