Polish labour migrants are the largest and one of the most recent immigrant groups in Norway. In this thesis the following questions are posed:

Why do some Polish labour migrants settle in Norway while others return to Poland? How do they decide upon length of stay, settlement and return migration?

To what extent are Polish migrant workers incorporated into the regular Norwegian labour market? What are their opportunities and what barriers do they face?

Are Polish migrant workers likely to remain employed or do they risk being excluded from the labour market over time? How do structural changes in the labour market in the wake of migration affect the risks and opportunities they face?
