Perception of European identity and social diversity in Poland and other European countries

Patricia Figuera-Pietrusza , Marek Drogosz


The current paper presents the results of an internet-based pilot study assessing differences between Polish nationals and other Europeans in their perception of European identification, openness to others and acceptance of social diversity. Altogether, 279 persons participated: Polish citizens (N = 127); other Europeans (N = 152). Data analyses suggest that Polish participants share a common understanding of European identification with other European respondents, albeit, they show higher level of anti-Europeanness. Polish participants seem less opened to others despite that they appear less concerned about potential threats related to migrant movements than the sample group of other Europeans.
