Languages of publication
The main object of the study was a description of the level and forms of political activity and different values treated as predicators of this activity in the years 2004, 2010 and 2014 during the period of transformation of the political and economic system in Poland. The article presents the results of researches performed on samples of 383 (2004), 234 (2010) and 295 (2014) students of psychology and political sciences. The results show that the level of political activity is generally the same and rather low (especially in the case of actual unconventional activity). We can even observe the lower level of actual conventional political activity in the year 2014. The highest level was achieved by legal, unconventional potential political activity. The strongest predicator of activity is belief in the value of the activity (positive correlation) and political freedom (negative correlation). Acceptance of individualistic values generally does not account either for conventional or unconventional forms of activity, whereas collectivistic orientation is a factor determining a rather lower level of unconventional activity.
