Kurzfassung englisch:
This paper examines acculturation strategies among second-generation Israeli migrants in the United States as part of their ethnic identity formation pro- cess. Utilizing data obtained through semi-structured personal interviews and building on Berry´s model (J Soc Issues 57(3):615-631, 2001, Int J Intercult Relat 29(6):697-712, 2005), as well as Cohen´s (Int Migr 49(4):1-22, 2011a) expanded typology, it traces four dominant strategies among this group; Those who employed Group Integration (A) and Group Nostalgic Insulation (B) expressed explicitly positive attitudes towards their parents´ country of origin as well as co-migrants while those using Individual Integration (C) were equally attached to their homeland and host country cultures. A fourth group subscribed to Assimilation (G), a strategy that entails negative attitudes towards the country of origin and the in-group of migrants but highly positive identification with the host society and culture. Thus, interactions and networks in the host-versus home-society dynamically construct acculturation strategies of second-generation migrants and contribute to the for- mation of their ethnic identities.
