Abstract

The present study investigated the mediator role of multiple identity dimensions (ethnic, national, and religious) in the association between discrimination and psychological well-being among 207 immigrant Muslims living in Italy. First and second-generation Muslim immigrants participated to the research. While for first-generation Muslim the impact of discrimination on psychological well-being is modest, for second-generation ones perceived discrimination resulted to be directly associated with psychological well-being ( higher depression and lower satisfaction with migration decision), and indirectly associated with satisfaction with migration through the mediation of national identity and religious identification.
