Main Article Content
In recent years, the society of our country has maintained a tense political situation between the Spanish state and the autonomous community of Catalonia. The children have been exposed to this situation and the comments heard may have been able to cause the appearance of prejudices or the creation of a stereotype about the inhabitants of this region. The beliefs of children from two different contexts, a rural setting and an urban one, the capital of Spain, have been taken into account. From a sample of students from two different contexts, we have obtained results that indicate that girls from Primary Education show more positive prejudices towards Catalans than boys. In addition, if we consider gender, children who live in an urban environment do not show differences when it comes to showing negative prejudices.
Keywords: Prejudices, Catalans, primary education, urban, rural.
