What is "migration policy" ? : the case study of migration policy of the Second Republic of Poland (1918-1939)

Abstract : The objective of this dissertation was to investigate the meaning and nature of ‘migration policy’ and give it a theoretical frame by conducting a global analysis of the migration policy of the Second Republic of Poland (1918-1939), a multi-linguistic, multi-faith, multi-cultural Polish state ‘(re)established’ after the Great War. Using qualitative research methods and applying the content analysis of archival sources and other primary printed materials as our data analysis method we aimed to investigate: the extent to which migration policy is a public policy of the state, a tool for the state and nation building and how the state protects its citizens abroad; the origins and construction of the state migration policy and the extent to which it is a constant policy and if/how it changes over time in different political scenarios: parliamentary democracy system, authoritarian regime and in the years of growing military and political tension preceding the outbreak of war; the interactions between migration policy, foreign policy of the state and international relations, as well as the meaning of bilateral migration agreements as international legal tools.
