Nov 02, 2010

A first preliminary report of data from the 'Polonia in Dublin' survey is now available. It contains an overview of Polish migration to Ireland, a brief discussion of the sampling strategy and findings regarding the demographic composition of the sample (gender, age, place of residence and accommodation, educational profile, employment and year of arrival). The main aim of the research was to study working conditions, occupational mobility, networks and leisure activities of the Polish community in Dublin. The survey was conducted by Trinity College Dublin with Peter Muhlau from the Department of Sociology as principal investigator. The study was financed by the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences (IRCHSS).This project relates to the larger study, the SCIP project, which studies integration trajectories of new immigrants in four European countries: Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland and Great Britain.
