The article is devoted to studying the role of generalized trust of the members of the host society when considering the relationship between their integration acculturation expectations and life satisfaction (hypothesis “integration”). In specially carried out research (Moscow; n=198) found that at a high level of generalized trust is the relationship between acculturation expectation integration and life satisfaction in the host population will be positive, and at its low level – negative. We conclude that generalized trust is a contextual condition to confirm the hypothesis of integration in Russia.
