Labour Immigration Policy in a Country Known for Emigration: Poland's Policy towards Economic Immigration after EU Accession
The main finding is that the factors affecting Poland’s labour immigration policy were mainly the state of the economy, the volume and composition of economic immigration and finally (soft) security considerations. Only far behind these factors was the influence of foreign policy and the European Union. An additional but very important intervening determinant was the human factor. The research revealed that in the case of Poland, the labour immigration policy is partly shaped differently than is the case with Western European countries and the United States.
