Social Psychological Factors of Multicultural Adoption Policy in Russia: A Review

Kotova M.V., Ph.D. in Psychology, Senior Lecturer, Chair of Organizational Psychology, Department of Psychology, Faculty of Social Sciences, National Research University Higher School of Economics, Moscow, Russia, mkotova@hse.ru
Abstract
The initial issue that became the focus of this study is that it is impossible to directly transfer successful multicultural policy solutions found in one context, one state to another. Therefore, one of the possible answers to this problem can be investigating social psychological factors that either contribute to or interfere with the adoption of multiculturalism policy. Basing on the analysis of various works on this topic, we suggest that the key factors are the following: protection of identity; support of integration strategies and multicultural policies by the population; compliance with the rules of establishing intergroup contact, as within educational institutions, as within a wider context; development of multicultural identity. Evaluation of the impacts of these factors within the Russian context allows us to conclude that the conditions are more favourable for some of them and less favourable for others. Protection of identity, compliance with the rules of intergroup contact, and development of multicultural identity are the ones to cause the most concern, which means that two of the three key criteria of multicultural policy are not satisfied: activities aimed at accepting equal rights of various cultural groups and protection and support of their identities and cultural practices.

Keywords: multiculturalism, intergroup relationships, protection of identity, intergroup contact, multicultural identity, Russia
