Abstract
This article is concerned with the linkages between events occurring at the macro-level and psychological phenomena. In particular it seeks to elaborate on the possible effects of globalization, migration, and multiculturalism on groups' and individuals' subjective experiences of security.

This article is concerned with the linkages between events occurring at the macro-level and psychological phenomena. In particular it seeks to elaborate on the possible effects of globalization, migration, and multiculturalism on groups' and individuals' subjective experiences of security. Special attention is given to the concept of dialogicality in the light of the challenges posed by an increasingly globalized world in which individuals have to relate to an increasing number of others. How migration and multiculturalism are affecting the securitization of dialogical selves is discussed, and the concepts of dialogicality, positioning, and interpretation are explicated in theory as well as in practice. As a result we introduce the concepts of reciprocity and relatedness in dialogical conceptions of self and use these concepts to link the three main sections of the article. In searching for viable solutions to conflict and tension between majority and minority populations, the notions of deliberation and cosmopolitics are introduced and explicated to encompass both structural and psychological solutions to such conflicts. Ontological, epistemological, and methodological as well as practical consequences of such inquiries are considered. (Less)
