The Presence of Prejudices Towards People of Catalonia and Muslims in Primary School

Authors : Oscar Navarro, Fr Ancisco Javier Sanchez-Verdejo, Juana Maria Anguita and Angel Luis Gonzalez

Abstract: Society may be exposed to prejudices. From the moment this concept appears, it has been frequently analysed in different contexts. In recent years, the debate about whether people from Catalonia have the right to decide on their nationality has been raised. This issue has become an ongoing debate. People’s perception across different regions of Spain, excluding Catalonia, may have influenced the overall image of citizens from Catalonia. This study aims to analyse the answers provided by Primary School children on the existence of prejudices in people from different backgrounds in relation to the aforementioned citizens. The pre-conceptions of Muslims have also been taken into consideration in order to compare and contrast data. The results have shown there are differences related to the setting where participants live. Citizens from urban areas have proven to be more negatively prejudiced than those from rural areas towards people from Catalonia.
