Polish MP: ‘For me, Multiculturalism is not a Value’

Multiculturalism is not a Value

Poland’s ultraconservative Law and Justice Party (PiS) won a second term in office last month, a victory that critics fear will accelerate the country’s slide towards authoritarianism.

 

The PiS rose to power in 2015, following a campaign that focussed on social conservatism, along with a generous social spending programme.

 

But the party’s refusal to take in refugees, along with its attempts to reform the judiciary – critics say at the expense of independence – has put it at loggerheads with the European Union.

 

Just this week, a top EU legal adviser said Warsaw broke the bloc’s law by refusing to take in refugees during Europe’s 2015 migrant crisis.
