Polityka migracyjna Drugiej Rzeczypospolitej - próba syntezy
MetadataShow full item record
The article follows the evolving migration policy of interwar Poland. It posits that through- out the entire period the state tried to increase the number of emigrants from Poland, and restrict the number of immigrants. In different conditions of the 1920s and 1930s, this translated into different actions and institutions. In the 1920s, migration policy was mostly considered a part of a wider array of social policies, and was supervised by the Ministry of Labour and Welfare. In the next decade, with limited opportunities of emigration, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs took the lead, and the policy’s focus changed to searching for available foreign lands for settlement. In general, Polish migration policy failed to achieve its goals, partially because of the state’s weak position on the international scene, and partially due to limited resources allocated to migration endeavours.
