Description In the context of the European “migration crisis,” the rise of populism and nationalism, and dramatic changes in the political-party spectrum, understanding attitudes towards immigrants and immigration and the factors behind these attitudes represents an important issue. This chapter contributes to understanding this phenomenon in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). We examine how attitudes towards immigrants and immigration are shaped by elements of national identity and political culture. With regard to such attitudes overall, we find that the “Western” countries, Germany and Austria, generally embrace more positive views than CEE countries.
