Formatted abstract
We propose that to understand how rejection perceptions affect immigrants’ acculturation orientations, we need to take account
of perceptions of rejection and group identification with both the host society and the country of origin. In line with previous work,
we found among Romanians and Moroccan immigrants in France that perceived French rejection directly affected French
identification and acculturation orientations. In addition, perceived rejection by the country of origin (Romanians and
Moroccans in the country of origin) negatively affected immigrants’ identification with this group. In turn, identification with
the country of origin positively predicted endorsement of integration and separation orientations, and negatively predicted
endorsement of assimilation. Overall, results suggest that identification with the country of origin is an additional important
factor in determining acculturation decisions.
