English Abstract

The previous studies highlighted that, the mass migration, might lead to a conflict between displaced people and host community because of the variation of ethnic or social backgrounds.

The current study investigates the role of self-categorization of mediates the well-being and prejudiced attitude.

For this study, two different Ethnic groups were selected Arab and Kurdish nationality.

The current investigation is to identify what extent self-categorization ‘overlap of self, In-group, and out-group’ could play important roles in addressing the issue of prejudice attitudes and well-being.

Likewise, we aim to expand the work to look at self-categorization to identify the nature of the relations of these variables among Kurdish and Arabic nationalities.

One hundred and seventy two individuals were chosen from both Arabic and Kurdish nationalities, aged 18 to 63 (M = 30 years, SD = 8.14).

To measure self-categorization Inclusion of Other in Self (IOS) scale three-item measure each item includes 8 pictures were used and for measuring prejudice the implicit accusation test (IAT) program was used, and to measure Psychological well-being (PWB) Ryff scale were used that contend 42 items across six dimensions.

The results show that both nationalities recorded significantly low levels of explicit prejudice on the self-report questioner.

However, the participants’ shows greater prejudice scores on the implicit test.

Also, our results showed that self-categorization play a significant role of mediating the relations between prejudiced attitude and Psychological well-being (PWB).
