Research examining the globalisation of environmental concern shown in public opinion surveys is currently underspecified, as the countries in Central and Eastern Europe are not explicitly showcased in empirical research. To address this gap in the literature, this research examines two measures of environmental concern, awareness of environmental threats and willingness to sacrifice, emphasising former state socialist countries both in comparison with countries around the globe and across countries located within this regional block. Results reveal that Central and Eastern European countries exhibit unique qualities regarding the content of environmental concern, and that, although the determinants of environmental threat awareness differ to some extent within this region, the social bases of willingness to sacrifice are strikingly similar across the six former state socialist countries in this sample. These results extend prior research and offer important directions for future scholarship.
