Diaspora and Ethnic Media in the Age of Migration. The Role of the Polish Ethnic Media in the Process Integration of Poles in the United Kingdom after May 2004
The scale of migration of Poles to the UK after Poland joined the EU in May 2004 has been one of the largest in the post-war Britain. The Home Office records show that 540,000 Polish citizens have migrated into the UK since 2004. In fact, Polish nationals constitute second biggest and the fastest growing migrant communities in the UK. As Burrell puts it: ‘It is difficult to think of another migrant group, which has established itself so quickly and so widely, in the British history (Burrell, 2009:7; Mori, 2014).
