Do Third Country Nationals in Slovenia Face Prejudice and Discrimination?


This article presents the results of a study on Third Country Nationals [TCNs] who live in Slovenia. The article focuses on discrimination on ethnic and racial grounds and explores whether TCNs experience discrimination on these grounds in five areas of their lives: housing, schooling, health care, the labour market and in contacts with public administration. The author identifies three factors that at least partially explain the different experiences and degrees of discrimination reported by interviewees.
KEY WORDS: Third Country Nationals, ethnic discrimination, racial discrimination, prejudice, language
