abstract
Insecurity theory states that religiosity is predominantly affected by insecurities experienced during childhood, instead of present insecurities. The empirical research of these aspects, however, has been hampered by the difficulty to disentangle past and present contextual effects. In this respect, first generation migrants offer an interesting case study which allows us to discern (1) contextual effects experienced during childhood, i.e. associated with the origin country, (2) contextual effects experienced during later life, i.e. associated with the destination country and (3) individual effects experienced during later life in the destination country. We test hypotheses using the European Social Survey (ESS) in cross-classified multilevel analyses on 5,900 individuals within on the one hand 25 destination countries and on the other 146 origin countries. While insecurity theory offers interesting prospects of explaining origin country variance, the applicability of insecurity theory to migrants at the individual and destination level is questioned by the results.
