SANTOS, Leonardo Blanco dos. Prejudice, discrimination, luso-tropicalism, lusophony, and organizational justice in Portugal, from the point of view of brazilian immigrants. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.1, pp. 61-74. ISSN 1984-6657.

Although immigrants report suffering experiences of discrimination in Europe, in Portugal the social representations of luso-tropicalism and lusophony could serve to weaken prejudice and discrimination against them. This study investigates what Brazilians who work in Portugal say about luso-tropicalism, lusophony, and organizational justice. The exploratory study is based on 33 semi-structured interviews; content analysis is done and the differences in the answers given, by sex, hierarchical level, and educational level, are checked using the Mann-Whitney test. Ingroup favouritism and outgroup devaluation are observed. The contribution of the social representations of luso-tropicalism and lusophony in weakening prejudice and discrimination against Brazilians in Portugal is not verified in Portuguese general society nor in the Portuguese labour market, yet a different situation is observed within organizations, where participants report being treated relatively fairly.

Palavras-chave : Luso-Tropicalism; Lusophony; Intergroup Relations; Organizational Justice.
