Children develop prejudice at an early age

Children in the Netherlands develop prejudices based on ethnicity at an early age. Ymke de Bruijn came to this conclusion in her dissertation “Child Interethnic Prejudice in the Netherlands: Social Learning from Parents and Picture Books.” For her Ph.D. project, she took a closer look at the behaviors and ideologies young children are exposed to by their parents and through picture books between the ages of six and ten. De Bruin will defend her thesis on 11 January.
