Sažetak
Recent research from the Netherlands has pointed at the importance of autochthony claims (i.e. claims about primo-occupancy of a territory) in defining majorities’ negative attitudes towards immigrants. This study goes a step further to examine another historical ownership claim in addition to autochthony: majority’s sense of investment in the territory (i.e. deservedness) and to extend the analysis to other countries in which territorial conflicts are prominent. Using survey data (N=838) we studied how these two historical ownership claims are used by groups to exclude ethnic minorities in six national contexts: Croatia, Cyprus, Kosovo, Israel, Serbia and the Netherlands. In general, we expected that the more one feels that the territory of the country is their ingroup’s home (the place where they belong), the more they will claim ownership on the basis of primo-occupancy and/or deservedness. These two ownership claims were further expected to translate into a lower support for minority rights, lower perceived chances of reconciliation and higher willingness to participate in political protests against these minorities. We found that only a sense of ‘being there first’ but not ‘investing in the country’ is related to the three dependent variables and that it mediates the association between territorial belonging and the dependent variables. This supports our arguments from previous papers that autochthony is an important form of ownership that has consequences for intergroup relations, whereas perceptions of deservedness (investment) seem to be less relevant.
