Educational Programme: Political Science (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 9

Year of Graduation: 2019

This study is devoted to the consideration and analysis of changes in the attitude of the local population to migrants in Russia and Eastern Europe (the Czech Republic and Hungary) from 2010 to 2016. In addition, this scientific work talks about what factors influenced the formation of a particular perception. Factor analysis is based on data provided by a project called European Social Survey. In addition, there is also a section with a qualitative study of the cases themselves. As a result, it turned out that the local population began to perceive migrants more negatively. The formation of a relationship is influenced by both economic and non-economic factors depending on the case. Moreover, using the confirmatory factor analysis, it was found out that Russia, Hungary and the Czech Republic can be considered as one large macro-region where, by and large, similar processes occur.
