Summary/Abstract: The aim of this paper is to underscore the importance of the phenomenon of prejudice, primarily those against ethnic groups, due to their impact on the “real world”, in which their is a threat of discrimination. The overall situation, political ideology and nationalisms contribute to the intensification of this problem, influencing everyday life and professional work. Social workers who work in such circumstances are in the centre of attention to possible negative consequences for clients in social work, their fundamental human rights being threatened. The work of social workers in a political context, in which everything is observed through the prism of the national, can be influenced by prejudice, which previously has to be understood.
