MONTEIRO, Maria Benedicta. The construction of social exclusion in inter-ethnic relations: theoretics and research orientations in a development perspective. Psicologia [online]. 2002, vol.16, n.2, pp.271-292. ISSN 0874-2049.

In this article a review is presented of children's development of ethnic categorisation, self-categorisation and group identification both in research on native vs. long settled non-native low-status minorities and in research on native vs. recent immigrant low status minorities. It is argued that intergroup interaction attitudes and behavioural strategies will be partially distinct in these two conditions and consequently that minority adjustment orientations should play a mediator role between groups' relative positions and intergroup attitudes and behaviours.

Keywords : Imigração; relações inter-étnicas nas crianças; autocategorização; identificação étnicas.
