Title of the thesis:Adaptation Process of Ghanaians in Europe
Summary:Ghanaians are always on the move for greener pastures. Not all are successful. What this paper did was to assess, through a quantitative analysis approach, the extent to which factors like age, length of stay, level of education, language fluency and sex aid or hamper the adaptation process of Ghanaians in five European countries United Kingdom, France, Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium. 385 Ghanaian migrants (with a minimum stay of 6 months in each host country) representing 77 from each of the aforementioned countries were sampled. The migrants should have lived at least a minimum of five years in Ghana immediately prior to their migration to Europe. The Cross Cultural Adaptation Inventory (CCAI), was used as the instrument for the study. The independent variables were Host Country, Length of Stay (in years), Language Fluency, Level of Education and Sex which were measured against the CCAI subscales Emotional Resilience, Flexibility / Openness, Perceptual Acuity and Personal Autonomy as dependent variables. SPSS and Excel software were utilised in analysing the data received from the field. Descriptive statistics, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) tests as well as Tukey Post Hoc tests were run to test levels of significance of relationships between the independent variables and dependent variables to investigate the laid down objectives. The research found that factors like level of education, current age of migrant, and length of stay and sex were not predictors of the adaptation process of Ghanaians as measured by the CCAI subscales. However, the choice of country was seen to influence the adaptation process whilst language fluency affected flexibility / openness, perceptual acuity and personal autonomy but had no statistically significant effect on emotional resilience.
Key words:
