Project description

This study test is if we can understand the relationship between national pride and prejudice by considering the complexity and meaningfulness of the way in which individuals draw ethnic boundaries around themselves and others, and the role of schools in doing so. The latter is studied through qualitative research that feeds into a quantitative study that focuses on the former.
