Report On Cross–border Mobility ‘Citizens of Ukraine on the Polish labour market. New challenges and perspectives’

The fourth edition of the report was developed after analysing the results of the sociological study conducted between 4 and 13 March 2023 by the EWL Migration Platform, the EWL Foundation and the Centre for East European Studies at the University of Warsaw. 500 adult Ukrainian citizens who are currently staying in Poland were surveyed, both those who arrived before 24 February 2022 (pre-war migrants) and those who came to Poland after the outbreak of the war (war refugees). 

2022 was a special year from the perspective of the shaping the migration landscape in Poland and the world. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine led to one of the largest refugee crises in recent European history. This event has dramatically changed the nature of cross-border mobility, as economic migrants were joined by war refugees, most of whom then also found a place on the labour market. 

The report will answer key questions, in particular: 

  • HOW has the profile of Ukrainian citizens staying in Poland changed? (age, gender, stay with children, education) 
  • ARE Ukrainian citizens going to apply for permanent residence in Poland and for Polish citizenship? 
  • WHAT percentage of migrants and refugees is using state and private medical care? 
  • DO children of migrants and refugees from Ukraine benefit from the Polish education system? 
  • HOW has the percentage of Ukrainian citizens working in accordance with their qualifications changed? 
  • HOW do Ukrainian citizens in Poland assess their financial standing? 
  • HOW MUCH money are refugees and migrants in Poland sending to Ukraine? 
  • WHAT channels of information and communication are used by Ukrainian citizens staying in Poland? 
  • WHAT fosters the integration of Ukrainian citizens in Poland?
