What drives the economic integration of immigrants in Poland?

Does it make sense to consider various domains of integration in the case of temporary migrants? How to assess their economic integration?

The publication - a special long-form edition of the Spotlight Newsletter of the Centre of Migration Research (CMR) at the University of Warsaw, presents some insights from research on Ukrainian, Vietnamese and Chinese populations in the Warsaw area.

  • Economic adaptation strategies of Chinese and Vietnamese migrants in Warsaw;
  • Changing Asian migrations to Poland on the example of the Chinese
