Is avoiding the looming problem of an ageing population the best reason we can find to encourage immigration to Poland? Do we need to replace the brightest and strongest we lost to the UK? Or if cultural diversity brings a wealth of experience and adds to the richness of life—are we investing in the right places? Where are the immigrants that are already here, and what are we doing to support them and encourage more? From NGOs to students, activists and community leaders, we discuss the various issues and experiences of emigration into, and migration from, Poland today, and ask questions about the Poland of tomorrow.
