This briefing presents an overview of the key features of migration and asylum policy in Poland, recent trends in migration patterns, and public perceptions and political narratives on refugees and other migrants.
Over the past three decades, Poland’s migration context has been transformed: from a homogenous society largely closed to the outside world to an increasingly prominent country of destination for refugees and foreign workers. Today, this includes more than 1.5 million refugees from the conflict in Ukraine.
This briefing is part of a wider project, supported by the IKEA Foundation, that aims to engage public and private stakeholders interested in migration and displacement.
