New Study: Prejudice in Europe

Researchers at the University of Bielefeld have released a study of prejudice in Europe. They surveyed opinions of 1000 respondents in each of eight countries: Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Poland and Hungary. Among the more important findings are that half of Europeans agree with the statement that their country has too many immigrants, and nearly a quarter agree that Jews have too much influence in their country. Slightly over half believe that Islam is a religion of intolerance.

There are substantial differences between countries as well. Lower levels of prejudice were observed in The Netherlands; higher levels in Poland and Hungary. Read more about the research.
