While citizens who define national membership in ethno-cultural terms are less likely to support immigration, those with a civic conception are more likely to do so. The authors propose that defining national identity along both ethno-cultural and civic lines may give rise to conflicting considerations, leading people to experience ambivalence, implying that national identities may serve less as a stabilizing force than suggested by previous research. Findings from heterogeneous choice models and a unique survey experiment show that German citizens with mixed conceptions of national identity had more variable and more malleable opinions than individuals with ideal-type conceptions during the 2015/2016 European refugee crisis. The findings point to an identity-based source of ambivalence and extend current understandings of how people form attitudes towards immigration.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Conceptions of National Identity and Ambivalence towards Immigration</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2021-03-23T10:47:48Z</dc:date> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Schoen, Harald</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Schoen, Harald</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Mader, Matthias</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2021-03-23T10:47:48Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Lindstam, Emmy</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2021</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
