The thesis examines the relationship between national identification and prejudice, particularly towards immigrants. It argues that this relationship can be better understood by considering particular meanings and definitions of national groups, and that these definitions vary within and between national contexts. In particular, it argues that an ethnic definition of the national group, which is a particular case of essentialism, plays an important role in shaping the extent to which national identification and prejudice are elated to one another.
