Modern culture, based on disinhibition of cultural trends and on heterodirection, is promoting openmindedness attitudestowards ethnic diversity, but on the other hand also new forms of social representations of the foreigner.

We will produce theresults of a research on the representation of the foreigner, built on the type of prejudice prevailing among middle-low or middle-higheducational qualification subjects, in which prejudicial attitudes seem to descend from precise mental images of the foreigner.
