It is sometimes said that migrants should work on their acculturation in the host country in order to realize their goals. In her PhD dissertation, which she succesfully defended last November, Ágnes Tóth argues that this relation may actually work the other way around.
The huge stream of immigrants comes with many challenges. These challenges often have an underlying psychological aspect. Psychological theories can therefore help to understand the impact of immigration on both immigrants and locals. They can also be used to develop interventions that could improve the understanding between immigrants and locals.
