Social Inclusion of Foreigners in Poland
Sowa-Behtane, Ewa
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (14th, Sofia, Bulgaria, Jun 14-17, 2016)
Poland has a relatively short history of immigration compared to other member states of the European Union. However, in recent decades, the number of foreigners in Poland has increased significantly. Intercultural relations may take the form of hostility, conflict, antagonism, segregation, separation, neutral co-presence, partial social adaptation, avoidance, withdrawal, alienation, marginalisation, integration, assimilation or acculturation. This paper is dedicated to an integration model. The author describes the phenomenon of migration and social inclusion of foreigners in Poland. The author also distinguishes factors and entities, which are important for the process of social inclusion. At the end of the paper the author highlights the different needs of Polish society. They cover, dialogue with foreigners, the creation, and an increase in social awareness, of an integration policy for foreigners learning about multiculturalism and allowing foreigners the opportunity to participate and play active roles within all areas of Polish society.
