“Everyone who’s normal hates the Gypsies” – Prejudice in context

  • Luca Váradi
Part of the Politische Psychologie book series (POLPSY)


In the previous chapters, micro-level intra- and interpersonal processes were described which are relevant for the crystallisation of individual attitudes. First, certain personality traits and values of the adolescents were identified, which proved to play a crucial role in the development of prejudices. Then, adolescents were placed in friendship dyads and the shared nature of prejudice was demonstrated and described in detail. Now it is time to look at the broader picture and see how the social context affects the development of prejudices.
