Abstract

The authors set out to study the extent and formats of interaction between the host population of a metropolitan city and the visible others in various social contexts (contacts as friends, neighbors, colleagues, etc.). Based on the analysis of the survey of Moscow residents (N = 452) conducted in December 2020, the authors examine the interaction between locals and newcomers from several perspectives. Firstly, these are the main social spheres and situations in which such contacts most often occur and how Muscovites assess this interaction. Secondly, these are features of their assessment of the degree of closeness to and alienation from the migrants from different countries/regions (Transcaucasia, Central Asia, republics of the North Caucasus). Finally, according to the projective part of the study, the inclination of city dwellers topossible contact with visible others in different everyday situations was analyzed: from the appearance of such people as neighbors, colleagues, and bosses to choosing them as friends and spouses.
