Abstract


The transformation of ethnic identity in the course of migration transition has a profound impact on psychological adjustment of migrant to inhabitancy in a new region. The survey is aimed at studying into a gender aspect of ethnic identity transformation in the process of migration. The paper summarizes the results of the survey on people of the Caucasian and Central Asia descent living in Russia. The techniques used include individual in-depth interviews and subsequent group discussions. New concepts into the socio-psychological discourse are introduced: "soft patriarchy", as well as primary and secondary (basic) ethnic identity. The findings allow the authors to argue that changes in ethnic identity can be considered at two levels: formalized relations and interpersonal relations.
