Slovaks fear migrants and their culture, survey shows
The migration crisis still stokes fears among Slovaks and the majority of them cannot imagine enlargement of the Muslim community in Slovakia.
As much as 61.3 percent of respondents believe that the European Union should shelter first and foremost those migrants who fled their homes because of military conflicts, according to the survey carried out by Trenčín-based Alexander Dubček University's Department of Political Sciences (TnUAD) between November 1, 2015 and January 31, 2016 on a sample of 1,033 respondents.
Moreover, 11 percent of respondents agree with accepting asylum seekers due to religious reasons, 10.2 percent due to political reasons and 6.8 percent due to economic reasons, whereas the rest is either are simply against accepting migrants or undecided, the TASR newswire reported.
