Racism and Ethnic Relations in the Portuguese-Speaking World



British Academy

Does it make sense to talk about racism in contemporary democratic societies? How can one explain the durability of racial prejudice and discrimination based on belief in the idea of race in formally anti-racist democratic societies? What possible peculiarities are displayed by social attitudes in Portugal in relation to people who are seen to belong to different racial or cultural groups? This chapter studies the most recent trends concerning racial prejudice and discrimination in Portugal.

Keywords:   racism, prejudice, discrimination, legitimisation, social norms, lusotropicalism
