The paper examines and compares the acculturation attitudes and cultural identity of Indian and Pakistani second generation adolescents in Britain (Scotland and England). The study integrates a social psychological approach to ethnic identity, Berry’s acculturation strategy and stress models and Phinney’s model of ethnic identification. There were 480 adolescents aged 13-18 years. Results from this study suggested that the majority of Indian youth in England adopted integration strategies as opposed to Pakistani Muslims who adopted a separation strategy. Ethnic identity scores were high for Indian and Pakistani youth in England and Scotland. Perceived discrimination was related to acculturation strategies.
