With this publication an important compilation of documents and other materials related to the episode of the so called "Arrastão" are made available to a wider public. Among other documents there are two contributions by researchers of the Centre of Social Research and Intervention (CIS/ISCTE) which addresses the social implications of prejudice in media coverage and the nexus between social identity, representations and inter-group relationships in the reception of media reports. Also making part of the lot are the official communiqués of the CICDR - Comissão para a Igualdade e Contra a Discriminação Racial [Commission for Equality and Against Racial Discrimination] and the final conclusions of the High Authority for the Mass Media. Media reports and interviews with different actors on the events, are also to be found in this volume.
