CUADRADO, Isabel; LOPEZ-RODRIGUEZ, Lucía  and  NAVAS, Marisol. The minority's perspective: stereotypes and emotions between immigrant groups. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.2, pp.535-544. ISSN 1695-2294.

This study focused on the minority's perspective, and analyzes the assessments that the three immigrant groups most representative in Spain maintain about each other on the variables defended by the stereotype content model (SCM). Four hundred and nine immigrants participated assessing the other two groups: Moroccan immigrants were assessed by Ecuadorians (EM group, N = 66) and Romanians (RM, N = 76); Romanians were assessed by Ecuadorians (ER, N = 65) and Moroccans (MR, N = 62); and Ecuadorians were assessed by Romanians (RE, N = 80) and Moroccans (ME, N = 60). All participants reported how they perceived the specific group in morality, sociability, and competence, the extent in which they experienced emotions of admiration, contempt, envy and pity, and their perception of status and intergroup competition. Results with minority groups supported most of the SCM predictions already confirmed with majority members. The most valued group in status and stereotypes was the Ecuadorian group (coinciding with the majority's perception), who also aroused more admiration. These findings are discussed by addressing the applicability of the SCM when analyzing intergroup relations among minority groups.

Keywords : immigrants; stereotype content model (SCM); intraminority intergroup relations; Moroccan; Romanians; Ecuadorians.
