National and Ethnic Minorities in the Greater Poland Voivodship

Languages of publication



The paper describes the situation of national and ethnic minorities in the Greater Poland voivodship. A part of the research refers to the results of a field study done by the author in the years 2011-2013. On the basis of the numeric size, territorial location, internal organization and activity of NGOs the minorities studied were classified into three groups. The following minorities are described: Russian, Belorussian, Lemko, Lithuanian, Armenian, Tartar, Czech, Greek, Bulgarian, Ukrainian, Jewish, German and Rom. The minorities in Greater Poland are rather small in number and territorially dispersed. They do not form any compact local communities in any region of the voivodship. Particular national and ethnic minorities differ in the scale of internal organization. As these minorities live in deep diaspora they do not form any noteworthy NGOs that would in a significant way influence the political, social or cultural life of the region.
