Abstract

Immigrant communities in Chile face barriers to their integration, in the form of discrimination and social exclusion. Psychology of Liberation claims that, when minority groups experience oppressing conditions, community participation can be a path to resist and to promote integration in the new society. Community participation has been mainly studied in North America and Europe thus investigating how it can build integration for minorities in South America is needed. Through a concurrent nested design this study explores the perception of integration of Peruvians who engage in migrant organizations (MOs) in Santiago de Chile. One hundred and ten Peruvians (age range 19 to 52 years) filled out a self-report questionnaire and a linear regression method was run with variables coming from the sociological and cultural approach (education, national identity and ethnic identity) and variables coming from the liberation approach (perceived institutional sensitivity, knowledge of the Chilean culture, knowledge of the Chilean laws) as predictors of the perception of integration. Eighteen Peruvian leaders (ages range 31 to 56 years) were interviewed and a thematic analysis was carried out identifying two themes: the opening of intergroup relations in Santiago and the organizational strategies to promote integration. The innovative result of the present project is the role of a Latin-American identity which could have negative consequences maintaining the status quo for the social exclusion that Peruvians are currently facing.
