UG project selected for funding by Polish-German Foundation for Science
Project entitled “Obszary aktywności społecznej polskich migrantów w Niemczech. Studium porównawcze Berlina i Hamburga” (“Areas of social activity of Polish migrants in Germany. A comparative study of Berlin and Hamburg”) is aimed at determining the nature of the presence and social activity of Polish immigrants in urban space and comparing the social behaviour and forms of participation in public life of Poles resident in Berlin and Hamburg. The project will result in the preparation of scientific publications in the form of articles in Polish, German and English and the participation of all project partners in international conferences concerning migration in the contemporary world. In addition, partners will take advantage of the cooperation and submit an application to the Polish-German Foundation for Science as part of the main competition, thus expanding the scope of research by including cross-border migration at the Polish-German border in the study. In this way, an extensive comparative study of Polish migration to Germany will be carried out, encompassing various types of migration and their scale in Germany.
Head of the project coordinated by the University of Gdańsk is Dr Magdalena Szmytkowska from the Faculty of Oceanography and Geography. The project’s budget stands at 10,000 EUR.
