Krzysztof is focused on researching the Chinese diaspora, with a particular interest in educational migration and its impact on the Chinese community in Poland. He works primarily with qualitative social research methods.
The main aim of this paper is to critically assess prevalent conceptualisations of the notion of economic integration to set out a research framework capable of structuring empirical research on economic integration, with a particular focus on the New Immigrant Destinations. To overcome the difficulties identified in the literature, we propose a ne...
Abstract: Chinese and Vietnamese immigrants were long understood through their ethnic enclave activity, and considered as economic migrants focused on wealth generation, without much desire for deeper social or economic integration. We draw on results of a quantitative study to challenge these assumptions and to analyse the significance of both eco...
The Chinese in Poland are an understudied but rapidly growing migrant community, undergoing a transition from an established pattern of economic chain migration to one based on investment of wealth in pursuit of a better life environment. Educational immigration by middle-class families provides insight into a broader trend of popular resistance to...
The objective of the project is to widen the knowledge on the relations between immigrants’ economic integration and migration patterns. This aim will be reached by conducting an analysis of the patterns of integration and immigration in the case of a country which is in the intermediate phase of the migration cycle. The current state of knowledge suggests a positive relation between the level of immigrants’ economic integration and the duration of their stay in the destination country. The classical explanation for this dependency lays in the process of the migrants‘ acquisition and accumulation of location-specific human capital, which supports their assimilation into the host labour market (Chiswick 1978). Existing theoretical models predict that in effect the immigrants’ productivity will increase and their labour market position (wages, employment rate, sectoral structure of employment, etc.) will converge to that of the native workers. If we acknowledge that receiving countries may have different positions in the migration cycle, this reasoning becomes incomplete and this is why we are planning to challenge the well established approaches to the issue of economic integration of immigrants.
