The purpose of this study was to examine how students of the Human Resources and Labour Relations Programme evaluates work applications from Swedish and Somali women. 55 students participated in the study. The respondents were supposed to read a fictitious work and from that, judge four applications from four women where two had Swedish names and two had Somali names. The independent variables were the participants' gender, grade and university (between subject variables) as well as the applicant's name (Swedish vs. Somali) as the within-subject variable. Generally speaking, the results showed support for our hypothesis that applicants with Somali vs. Swedish name would be judged as less suitable for the appointment, and by that indicating a discrimination effect of applicants’ name.
