Polish ‘temporary’ migration: the formation and significance of social networks

White, Anne and Ryan, Louise (2008) Polish ‘temporary’ migration: the formation and significance of social networks. Europe-Asia Studies, 60 (9) . pp. 1467-1502. ISSN 0966-8136 [Article] (doi:10.1080/09668130802362227)


This article is based on in-depth interviews with migrants in different locations in Poland and the UK and explores Polish migrant decision making in both countries. In particular, we ask how migrants build networks, how this influences their decisions about the duration of their stay abroad, and the implications of network building for community cohesion. Networks exist within the sending country; between the sending and the receiving country; within diasporas; and between diasporas and the receiving community. Our article considers the first three sections of this chain.
