Acculturation of Immigrants in the Czech Republic

  • Kamila Matysová
Registered author(s):

    The paper offers a framework for an acculturation strategy for the Czech Republic. The survey aims to detect the situation of the three biggest immigrant groups in the Czech Republic (Slovaks, Ukrainians and Vietnamese) and their strategies of acculturation. Berry´s theoretical concept of acculturation proposes four different acculturation strategies termed assimilation, integration, separation and marginalization. The model is based on the assumption that the way in which individuals acculturate depends on how they simultaneously deal with two fundamental issues. The first is the extent to which acculturating individuals regard maintenance of their cultural heritage as important or not. The other issue is concerned with the extent to which individuals regard contact with other cultural groups and participation in the new society as important or not. The paper reveals what effect prejudice, cultural differences, activities of expatriate organizations and other phenomena have on acculturation strategies of immigrants that are applied in the Czech Republic.
