It provides some general thoughts about return migration and then looks more specifically at the scale and patterns of contemporary return migration to Poland. It discusses interviewees' perceptions about how many people were returning, and the permanence or otherwise of that return. It explores how migrants think about the duration of their stay, including the changeability of their plans. It looks at their perceptions of Poland and of their potential livelihoods in Poland as compared to their actual livelihoods in the UK.
