Polish Organisations in Germany

Their Present Status and Needs

Series:

Michal Nowosielski

Although the Polish immigrant movement in Germany has existed for more than 150 years, this fact is not reflected in the shape or standing of contemporary organisations. The history of Polish associations in Germany is an example that demonstrates, on the one hand, growth and expansion, and on the other, the weakening and decay of an immigrant organisation movement. «Polish Organisations in Germany: Their Present Status and Needs» is intended to fill, to a certain extent, the gaps in the sociological literature on Polish organisations in Germany. It aims at describing the situations in which nongovernmental organizations that associate Poles residing in Germany find themselves: their number, their number of members, the fields and range covered by their activities, their financial standing, their level of organization, their relations with the Polish and German authorities, etc.
