(p.1) One Introduction
Polish families and migration since EU accession

Anne White

Policy Press

This chapter concentrates on developing ideas which are particularly relevant to the reasons families migrate from Poland, the experiences of Poles in England, and the factors that shape their thoughts about how long to stay. It notes that the research interviews suggest that Polish families do not usually arrive in the UK intending to settle and explores why people make certain decisions which have a bearing on whether they stay or return, instead of asking directly how long they will stay and then producing statistics about the answers. It notes that mass migration by polish families to the UK, and to European Union (EU) countries in general, is a new phenomenon.

Keywords:   Poland, England, research interviews, Polish families, statistics, mass migration, European Union countries, phenomenon
