OPPOSITIONAL IDENTITIES AND EMPLOYMENT FOR ETHNIC MINORITIES: EVIDENCE FROM ENGLAND
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Economics.
2010 (English)In: Economic Journal, ISSN 0013-0133, E-ISSN 1468-0297, Vol. 120, no 542, f52-F71 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Where a community or group is socially excluded from a dominant group, some individuals of that group may identify with the dominant culture and others may reject that culture. The aim of this article is to investigate this issue by empirically analysing the potential trade-off for ethnic minorities between sticking to their own roots and labour market success. We find that the social environment of individuals and attachments to culture of origin has a strong association with identity choice. Our results also suggest that those non-whites who have preferences that accord with being 'oppositional' do experience an employment penalty.
