I would like to attempt to describe Poland’s place in the problem I have sketched out. First of all, Poland has been open to immigration for some time and it is starting to be a significant immigration country in the EU. There are no scientific grounds to claim that Polish society is xenophobic (or more xenophobic than other societies in the EU) or that it poses obstacles to the integration of immigrants.
