ABSTRACT

This chapter presents the results of the 2018 survey and then correlates them in terms of the population’s expectations, attitude toward social problems and the global village, their capacity for self-reflection and their understanding of human community. Perhaps unsurprisingly given the migrant crisis of 2015 and its subsequent media attention, an increasing suspicion toward foreigners has developed, especially among the least educated members of society and those most affected by multiculturalism: the inhabitants of Budapest. The most important form of community remains the family, followed by the nation and, thereafter, the EU.
