Manning, Alan and Roy, Sanchari (2010) Culture clash or culture club? National identity in Britain. The economic journal, 120 (542). F72-F100. ISSN 1468-0297
This article investigates the extent and determinants of British identity among those living in Britain, a source of considerable contemporary angst. We find no evidence for a culture clash in general, and one connected with Muslims in particular. The vast majority of those born in Britain, of whatever ethnicity or religion, think of themselves as British. Newly arrived immigrants almost never think of themselves as British but the longer they remain in the UK, the more likely it is that they do. This process of assimilation is faster for those from poorer and less democratic countries.
