Social judgments about ethnic exclusion among Latin-American children and adolescents living in Spain.
This study explores social judgments about ethnic exclusion from the perspective of ethnic minority children living in Spain. The study was conducted in Madrid with a sample of 72 Latin American children and adolescents between 6-17 years of age. We used a clinical semi-structured interview. Participants were presented with a picture depicting a Latin American child being excluded from a birthday party. They had to describe the exclusion situation and provide an evaluation of it (right or wrong). Also, they had to justify their judgment. Additionally, an unexpected finding was obtained: some children tended to blame the excluded child, attributing to him/her responsibility for his/her own exclusion.
