Recent Polish Migrants in London: Social networks, transience and settlement

Based on the findings of a qualitative study of recent Polish migrants in London, this report focuses on social networks, family strategies and planning for the future. The research challenges assumptions of transience and suggests that Polish migrants may be showing signs of extending their stay in Britain. Moreover, it confirms that migrant women are more likely than men to develop personal and household strategies consistent with long–term or permanent settlement abroad. Our research also highlights the variety and dynamism of family migration strategies and women’s active agency in family decision-making.
