Experiences of Racism and Discrimination among Male Immigrants in Poland

Kolankiewicz, Marta LU (2011) In (Post)Transformational Migration. Inequalities, Welfare State, and Horizontal Mobility 13. p.273-294
Abstract
The chapter aims to contribute to an understanding of racism and ethnic discrimination as a tangible experience in the everyday life of immigrants in Poland. The empirical material used are survey questionnaires and in-depth interviews with immigrants from Africa and Asia. The results of this study undermine the reliability of official data, by demonstrating that a large portion of racist crimes committed in Poland go unreported. Moreover, the study shows some strategies of dealing with everyday racism and discrimination adopted by the immigrants and it illustrates the negative and far-reaching effects of racism.
