  • Luca Váradi
Part of the Politische Psychologie book series (POLPSY)


In this chapter the context of the present study is described, starting with an overview of the rich field of research on the intergroup attitudes of Hungarian adults since the political transition of 1989–1990. This is followed by a detailed description of the most relevant studies among adolescents. After identifying the shortcomings of the existing studies addressing the intergroup attitudes of the Hungarian youth, the broader context of our study is presented. An overview of the conditions and problems of the Roma in present-day Hungary is followed by a brief description of the youth of Hungary and Budapest.
