Patterns of Migration in Central Europe

by Claire Wallace, Dariusz Stola

Patterns of Migration in Central Europe brings together new material on migration in the region: Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In the last ten years, these countries have changed from being countries of emigration to countries of immigration. As the next candidates for membership to the European Union, migration has become a particularly important topic for these countries. This book is designed as a key text for those interested in the development of the region and in European migration more generally.

In The Press

'...an essential starting point for individuals interested in any type of migration into and out of Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, [and] their relationships with their immediate neighbours, especially Austria, Germany and the Ukraine. The particular strengths of this volume lie in the tightness of its structure, the way it holds together as an edited book and the wealth of factual information it provides.' - Panikos Panayi, Immigrants and Minorities
