THE IMAGE OF BELARUS, RUSSIA AND UKRAINE AMONG POLES: AN ANALYSIS OF FREE ASSOCIATIONS
Languages of publication
The images of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia have been the subject of interest of Polish researchers, but they have not constituted the subject of the same study based on a uniform methodology of studies. For this reason the existing studies are incompatible and the images of the countries are difficult to compare because of the numerous methodological differences in obtaining them. The main aim of the undertaken research project was to identify the differences in the perception of the image of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia against the background of other countries, based on an identical procedure of research and of the taxonomy of associations. Studies were conducted with the use of the method of individual interview with the technique of free associations on the sample of 100 subjects aged 17 to 63. In the course of more than one-hour-long interviews 25 447 associations with 46 countries were gathered, including 1956 associations with Belarus, Russia and Ukraine that have been subjected to a detailed classification and comparative analyses. Current images of these countries have been confronted with the existing statistical data and assessments by experts.
