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. Learn more
The lecture will be conducted in English. Free admission.

The body of knowledge on young people entering adulthood remains fragmented and requires systematization. There is insufficient data about social behaviors, personal and professional experiences, and life choices of young people. Therefore, we need more studies to understand these matters better. The International Symposium Researching Young Lives aims to provide practical information about tools for researching behaviors of young people entering adulthood.
