Abstract

Ethnic identity and national identity are aspects of social identity that bring with them pros and cons in relation to acculturative stress and individual health more generally. As a multicultural country made up of various ethnic groups, Indonesia places a high importance on the concepts of ethnic identity and national identity, and how these twinned concepts affect individuals’ physical and mental health. This study aims to identify the effect of national identity and ethnic identity on acculturative stress and general self-related health. Research was conducted on 251 university students who were Indonesian internal migrants, originating from various parts of Indonesia and studying at various universities in Central Java and Yogyakarta. The results of this study show that national identity is a construct that is better able to reduce the risk of acculturative stress and moreover has a positive effect on general self-rated health. Meanwhile, ethnic identity has the opposite effect, where ethnic identity is actually closely related to acculturative stress among students who are Indonesian internal migrants. We discuss the Implications, limitations and future research directions arising from this study.
