Abstract

What is the attitude of the inhabitants of European countries to their coexistence with immigrants? The present study attempts to answer this question using the data of the fifth wave of the European Social Survey. All the countries in the sample were divided into three groups: the countries which joined the EU before 2004, those which joined the EU after 2004, and non EU countries. It has been shown that the determinants of the attitude of these three groups of people to the issue raised above are often significantly different.
