Using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel, this study contributes to the literature on the positive effects of citizenship acquisition for immigrants’ integration, which so far, has focused on the impact of citizenship acquisition on labor market integration. Naturalization is discussed as an individual investment and unique event in immigrants’ life courses. It is argued that naturalization leads to an increase in national identification both as a means of avoiding dissonance and as a consequence of improved opportunities for identifying with the mainstream society. In summary, this study finds a positive effect of naturalization on national identification regardless of the new citizen’s country of origin. Although country of origin and national identification are generally at odds, further analysis reveals that naturalization may increase the compatibility of both identifications, at least in the case of naturalized Turks.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Fick, Patrick</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/33662"/> <dcterms:alternative>Fördert Einbürgerung die Integration? : Eine Längsschnittstudie zu den Folgen des Staatsbürgerschaftserwerbs von Immigrantinnen und Immigranten für die Identifikation mit Deutschland</dcterms:alternative> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-04-22T11:34:56Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/34"/> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Does Naturalization Facilitate Integration? : A Longitudinal Study on the Consequences of Citizenship Acquisition for Immigrants’ Identification with Germany</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/34"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-04-22T11:34:56Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
