The paper is a tentative answer to the question, what kind of citizens the Poles are. The authors define citizenship not as a virtue, but as an individual's attitude towards self-governing polity, towards other individuals, institutions and procedures. The attitude is grounded in internalized rights and duties of the polity member and is a basis for self-construction of civic role of an individual. The authors indicate key components of such citizenship, and among other things: social agency, sources of political identity, inclusiveness or closure of political community, universalism and particularism of rights, and authoritarian temptations as well as civic conformism. Factor analysis reveals five major components of Polish citizenship (authoritarians, followers, alienated citizens, committed democrats and peace-seekers), that are confronted with behavioral dimensions of citizenship.
