The Inquiry has the objective to examine the notions of the inquired about their own identity. The questions are based on the concepts, proposed and used in the other text of the Project. Identity represents the way individual persons and groups of people self-define themselves. It is something complex, that consists from different elements which can support, complement or to clash between one another. There is a set of national, confessional, social, professional, matrimonial, etc identities. The identity of every person changes with his age, as a result of different influences, it depends from the milieu, etc.
The Inquiry is targeted to people with some kind of 'complex' identity (living outside their ethnic or confessional milieu, people in or from mixed marriages, with specific sexual preferences, etc.
The Inquiry is in two variations. One is more elaborated and is targeted to people with some trained in humanities, and to people disposed to articulate in more detail their notions and opinions. This variation expects that the inquired will give his/her name, age, and some other information (since when he/she is part of a community, how his/hers notions and opinions changed in time and with his/hers age, etc.
The other variation takes the form of a test. It is more concise, expects shorter answers, and is targeted to more or less compact groups (par example immigrants in one city). This variation allows anonymous answers. The inquired can select more than one of the proposed answers.
The results of the inquiry will be used for scholar objectives, will be published on the website of the Project. They will be offered to general or specialized media for other publication with the explicit agreement of the inquired persons.
