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

Abstract : We start from the fact that the discriminated is almost absent from the theory of discrimination in economics. Indeed, while the reasons that make one discriminates another are well established, not much has been said about how the discriminated will react. Putting together concepts such as psychological consistency and group identity, we propose a frame that sums up some strategies that a discriminated can pursue. We end up analysing the conditions under which an individual would consider to get away from the groups he is assimilated with in order to avoid discrimination, at the expense of his psychological consistency and of his group related identity.
