About us

The Center for Research on Prejudice is an interdisciplinary research unit at the Faculty of Psychology, University of Warsaw, where social psychologists and sociologists work together on topics related to stereotypes, prejudice, racism, discrimination and other issues pertaining to intergroup relations.

 

Our monthly in-house seminars, as well as conferences and scientific sessions, provide important platforms for communication between Polish and foreign researchers. Each year, the Center organizes the Henri Tajfel Seminar devoted to issues of broadly defined intergroup relations.

 

The Center conducts basic research – supported by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education grants, Faculty of Psychology statutory funds, and international research grants – and applied studies which are realized in cooperation with non-governmental organizations such as the Forum for Dialogue Among Nations, the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland, and the Museum of the History of Polish Jews.

 

One of the core activities of the Center comprises the annual Polish Prejudice Survey, a multifaceted, representative-sample study of attitudes toward ethnic, national, and social minorities in Poland.
