Identity, group membership, psychological consistency: the discriminated in the economics of discrimination

Abstract : In economics, we start from the fact that the discriminated element is almost absent from the theory of discrimination. Indeed, while the reasons why one person discriminates against another are well established, we have done little research on the reaction of the discriminated individual. By bringing together concepts such as psychological coherence and group identity, we propose a framework that summarizes some of the strategies adopted by the discriminated individual. We also analyze the conditions under which an individual may consider moving away from the groups to which he or she is assimilated in order to avoid discrimination, to the detriment of his or her psychological coherence and group identity.
