Modeling Dynamics of Multicultural Integration and Conflict
Wouter De Raad , Andrzej Nowak , Wojciech Borkowski
AbstractA series of computer simulations explored a formalized theoretical model of multicultural integration which concentrates on attitudes towards ingroup and outgroup as main variables. The simulations were aimed at the investigation of social dynamics underlying the evolution of patterns of integration and segregation. The findings suggest that: integration is possible only with strong mutually positive attitudes; negative attitudes lead to segregation even if one group would be positive; surprisingly tolerance – a neutral stance also leads to segregation. These results are discussed in the light of conflict and multiculturalism.
