About this book

Luca Váradi aims to understand the formation of the Hungarian teenagers’ attitudes towards the Roma, as adolescence is a crucial period in identity development. Her objective is to determine to what extent the classical and more recent theories on the formation of prejudice can be applied in a context in which there is no public consensus of respect towards minorities. The author lets the teenagers express their own views to see their world through their eyes, allowing the reader to understand what being prejudiced or tolerant means to these adolescents.

About the authors

Luca Váradi is a Hungarian sociologist. Her research focuses on ethnic prejudices and especially on the formation of prejudice in adolescence. She is currently a research fellow at the University of Hamburg and guest lecturer at the Central European University.
