This report analyzes migration processes from Ukraine and Russia to Poland from the perspectives of the political frameworks existing in both the sending and receiving countries, with special attention to links between integration and diaspora policies and their roles in shaping migration flows and integration practices. The report is based on both quality and quantitative original research, including the exploratory survey targeted representatives of civil organizations working with migrants conducted in INTERACT project. The research confirms that there is a serious gap between the legal and institutional state’s frameworks, and their implementation in practice. The survey results confirm that in the case of Ukrainians and Russians migrants residing in Poland, there is a lack of evidence of any organized support from the country of origin and country of destination with respect to migrants’ integration in the receiving country.
