Thatcher, Jenny (2012)

Types: Part of book or chapter of book
Focusing on Central and Eastern European migration from accession states to England, this\ud paper seeks to explore how migration has been affected by global level socioeconomic and\ud political transformations that have occurred as part of wider global integration. The study\ud explores Central and Eastern European migrant’s experiences of globalisation at a micro level.\ud The argument in this paper seeks to conceptualised East to West migration as a structuration\ud process: using the analytical categories of social structure and human agency, and applying the\ud structuration model to explain the reciprocal influence of migrant’s home and host societal\ud structures in shaping their activities and goals (Morawska, 2001). The paper also aims to show\ud that East to West migration is determined by market forces and that EU accession is used as an\ud enabling structure by the migrants to regularise the already existing process of Central and\ud Eastern European migration flows.
