The Relationship between Harassment, Insecurity and Religious Identity
Ethnic harassment, discrimination and hate crimes are common experiences, particularly among ethnic and religious minorities, and being the target of such behavior can reduce overall wellbeing and increase stress, and risks of chronic illness. However, there may be social and psychological mechanisms that ameliorate the negative effects of such experiences, and there is reason to believe that religion may play a role in this relationship.
In this study I use panel data from the UK Household Longitudinal Survey (2009-21) to investigate whether people who experience ethnic harassment have a subsequent increase in religious identification or practice, and to what extent this affects their wellbeing. I also examine the potential reverse effect, namely whether stronger religious identification would increase the likelihood of harassment experiences attributed to ethnic, racial or religious identity.
