    Abstract With the socio-economic crisis that is particularly affecting Europe negatively, immigrants have been often reported as additional threats in the job market for ‘insiders’. Theories of prejudice, such as the Theory of Self-interest or that of the Perceived Group Threats, have suggested economic factors to explain these kinds of attitudes towards immigrants. More recently, some scholars have advanced theories of intercultural values to account for individuals’ dispositions towards those perceived as ‘outsiders’. The aim of this work is to understand whether or not intercultural values are able to modify the effects that economic factors exert on prejudice in times of crisis. The main objective is to identify if the kinds of values instilled within societies play a stronger role compared to other variables, and particularly compared to economic factors. Following the findings, this article shows that Interculturalism plays a much greater role than economic factors in influencing attitudes towards outsiders.
