Immigration from one country to another is not without effect on the psychology of a person on his state of mind. In the context of migration, the person is often found placed in a particular context where it is often faced with paradoxical expectations are from the host country but also its country of origin. These expectations are very high then the person in a psychological situation contradictory.

A person in a position of migration is therefore subject to expectations from the country of origin. These expectations can sometimes be financial. The person must meet the needs of its community and send a portion of these revenues to the country of origin. The person becomes responsible for a part of the community. Important responsibility because many people may then depend on income sent. Expectations can also be language and culture. The person must not betray his culture of origin, should not live in the host country, he must keep the traditions and lifestyle of the country of origin. This expectation leads the person to suspend contact with its environment and its integration limit.


The side of the host country, the person in migration is also subject to very high expectations. The host country generally expected that the person fits the lifestyle and adopt common behaviors. The person is then prompted to change their language and culture. It must not claim difference. On the material level, the expectations of the host country are just as opposed to the expectations of the country of origin. The person is often no longer an incentive to turn to these sources, the wealth produced in the country should stay and not be transmitted to the community. Injunctions that challenge people with migration are very strong but also paradoxical. The person is asked to keep the language and culture of a country where it no longer lives. It must, moreover, be integrated into a country without being able to recognize their differences.
