Abstract

IN ENGLISH: The model of ethnification posits that in post- socialist contexts ethnic identities are used as a source for political mobilization against ethnic outgroups. In Croatia, this is further amplified by collective war experiences. This paper investigates the association between identity- based variables, related to ethnification and war experiences, and anti- immigrant prejudice in Croatia. The study employed structural equation modelling of the data from a large youth sample (N = 1, 034). Higher ethnic threat, lower cultural capital, more exclusive conception of nationhood and right-wing political orientation predicted stronger anti-immigrant prejudice. Ethnic threat moderated the effect of political orientation on prejudice: under high ethnic threat there was no difference between left-wing and right-wing individuals. As the results correspond to findings from Western countries, we argue that comparable explanations of anti-immigrant prejudice may be applied to non-Western and Western contexts. --------------- IN CROATIAN: Prema modelu etnifikacije, etnički identiteti u post-socijalističkim kontekstima mogu biti korišteni pri političkoj mobilizaciji protiv drugih etničkih grupa. U Hrvatskoj je to dodatno pojačano kolektivnim ratnim iskustvima. Ovaj rad istražuje odnos između identitetskih odrednica povezanih s etnifikacijom i ratnim iskustvima te predrasuda prema imigrantima u Hrvatskoj. Podaci su prikupljeni na velikom uzorku mladih (N=1034) te obrađeni strukturalnim modeliranjem. Rezultati istraživanja pokazali su da su izraženija percepcija etničke prijetnje, niži kulturni kapital, isključivije poimanje nacionalnog identiteta i desna politička orijentacija povezane s izraženijim predrasudama prema imigrantima. Također, etnička prijetnja moderirala je odnos između političke orijentacije i predrasuda prema imigrantima: u uvjetima izraženije etničke prijetnje nisu nađene razlike u razini predrasuda između lijevo i desno orijentiranih pojedinaca. S obzirom na to da dobiveni nalazi korespondiraju s onima iz zapadnih zemalja, naznačuje se mogućnost da se predrasude prema imigrantima mogu na sličan način tumačiti u zapadnjačkim i nezapadnjačkim kontekstima.
