This section examines the interaction of migrants with new cultures. It evaluates the contribution made by migrants, which sustains culture and renders it dynamic and pluralistic in the spirit of globalization. We discuss how migrants can creatively induct a host culture into a more creative understanding of the global. At the same time, we consider the process of acculturation of the migrants in the host culture and what that signifies for community relations, citizenship and/or hybridity. We thereby consider the transition from being a migrant to being rooted (uprooted) in the new societal context.
