Item description for Changing Prejudice in Hungary: A Study on the Collapse of State Socialism and its Impact on Prejudice against Gypsies and Jews (ICS) by Koos Postma...
Since the end of the eighties considerable changes have occured in Eastern Europe. Socialist people's replublics have become parliamentary democracies and centrally planned economies are being transformed into market economies. These processes have been accompanied by an increase in prejudice in the media against all kinds of ethnic and national groups in that region. This study is based on social scientific research focusing on changes in prejudice in relation to the transformation processes, with special reference to prejudice against Gypsies and Jews in Hungary. Have there been changes in the level of prejudice against these groups since the transformation processes and to what extent can these changes be explained by these transitions? The results of descriptive analysis and testing of hypotheses using data from before and after the transformations have proved to be rather surprising.
