Abstract: In the present article we intend to point out the relationship between prejudice and national concepts in different national contexts among students. We tried to justify that the explanation based on the view of prejudices by Fuchs and Case - according to whom prejudice is not an attitude but a way of life – is valid in different national contexts. For this reason the procedure was applied in our survey in order to validate the conception in three (Hungarian, Finnish, Russian) different cultural-political contexts, and also to use it as a reference model in determining the explanation of prejudice. The second aim was to reveal the structural relationships between the national attitudes of the model and attitudes towards minority groups.
