Abstract: This study examine possible incidence of discrimination against immigrants in Sweden in an experimental setting. Participants played the trust game and the dictator game with co-players with different ethnic affiliation. The family name of the players was exposed to their counterparts. Results for the trust game showed no discrimination against non-Swedish co-players. On the other hand, the dictator game experiment showed a statistically significant discriminatory behavior by men against co-players with non- European background. The discriminatory behavior was solely a male phenomenon.
