Amorphous Population Movements into Poland and Ensuing Policy Challenges

Immigration Worldwide

So far immigration to Poland can be described by its amorphous nature characteristic of the period of transition between the first and second stages of the immigration process. In the first stage a highly dynamic and irregular inflow of immigrants (irregular, short-term, and transit migration) prevails accompanied by a lack of state immigration policy. Currently, Poland is approaching the second stage, during which immigration is stabilizing and becoming more permanent, the influx is being increasingly controlled, and a coherent immigration policy is being constructed. In this stage attitudes toward foreigners are being crystallized, immigrants are settling down, and immigrant communities are slowly emerging.
