Polish Migration to the UK in the ‘New’ European Union



SKU: 9781317078937 Category: Tags: , , , , ,


Since the 2004 enlargement of the European Union over half a million Polish migrants have registered to work in the United Kingdom, constituting one of the largest migration movements in contemporary Europe. Drawing on research undertaken across a wide range of disciplines – history, economics, sociology, anthropology, film studies and discourse analysis – and focusing on both the Polish and British aspects of this phenomenon – both emigration and immigration – this edited collection investigates what is actually new about this migration flow, what its causes and consequences are, and how these migrants’ lives have changed by moving to the United Kingdom. As the first book to deal with Polish migration to the United Kingdom, Polish Migration to the UK in the ‘New’ European Union will appeal to scholars across a range of social sciences, whose work concerns migration and the migration process.
