University

Migration affects people living in ‘sending countries’ in numerous, often barely noticed ways. It blends with other globalisation and Europeanisation influences to shape the lives of individuals in Warsaw and Wrocław as much as Polish small towns and villages. In her lecture on "The Impact of Migration on Poland: EU Mobility and Social Change", Professor Anne White from the University College London will discuss how the transnational ties of individual Poles in Poland contribute to wider social change.

The lecture, organized by the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program at SWPS University, is part of the series The Challenges of the Humanities of the 21st Century.

The lecture will be conducted in English. Free admission.

The Impact of Migration on Poland: EU Mobility and Social Change

Focusing on diasporas and return migrants, migration scholars ask how migrants shape their country of origin. This approach poses the danger of overstating the role of migration. The lecture suggests a complete reversal of perspective. It will map how the lives of people who live in Poland are changing and will ask how migration contributes to that change. The lecture aims to provide an analysis of the impact of migration, as comprehensive as possible, on a single sending country.

Anne White is Professor of Polish Studies and Social and Political Science at University College London School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES). She holds a Ph.D. from the London School of Economics and Political Science. Her current research interests focus on migration in general, on social change in Poland and on Polish migration. Most of her fieldwork consists of in-depth interviews conducted across a range of locations in Poland. Her publications include Polish Families and Migration since EU Accession (Bristol: Policy Press, 2nd edition 2017) and three other monographs.

Migration has a huge multi-faceted impact not only on the receiving countries, but also on the countries of origin of migrants. Professor Anne White has researched the impact of migration on Poland. We have a great privilege to host her at SWPS University and to benefit from her experience.
