Poland experienced a sharp rise in inequality during its transition from communism to capitalism, and this trend has continued into the 2000s.

This rising inequality and promises to address it through redistributive policies were key factors in the victory of Law and Justice at this year’s Polish election – and they could well be a major feature in the UK’s upcoming election campaign.
