CONTEMPORARY POLISH EMIGRATION TO THE UNITED STATES: SCALE, DETERMINANTS, AND SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION
This article focuses on the issue of contemporary Polish emigration to the United States. In the recent years, particularly in the Polish literature, much attention has been paid to the issue of post-accession Polish migrations. Simultaneously, a weakening interest in the processes of Polish emigration to the US and also in the issues of the American Polonia has been observed. This article is an attempt to fill the emerging research gaps. It focuses on the scale of contemporary Polish emigration, its spatial distribution, and main incentives for emigrating. An important aim of this paper is also to provide an answer to the question whether this emigration is only of economic character, or are there other factors at play?
