This paper presents views and observations about some current social problems in Poland. The problems introduced are theoretically discussed in reference to Poland’s entry in the European Union. The argumentation

in this paper is performed in three stages. The first stage presents a model of Polish society throughout communism towards today’s society, were the weight is put on the Catholic Church’s role in Polish legislation and the role as such is evaluated. The next stage is a presentation of Polish law and how the law is applied in practice. The laws presented at this stage are, the law on ethnic minorities and the law on abortion. These two stages analyze the laws cause and consequents and lead up to a discussion on whether human rights are being upheld in Poland and what role the European Union could have in Poland’s future.
