Beschreibung:

The author examines social mobility in the enlarged EU by analysing the work sequences of 1865 movers and stayers in Poland. Using indicators of upward and downward social mobility, she explores the role of migration in occupational careers and reveals agency and reflexivity as drivers of non-financial sense-making of migration.
Contents: Making the way through the world on the move - Opportunity structure and multi-component agency - Spatial mobility and social mobility - Stable and changeable work sequences of migrants and stayers - Agency, reflexivity and social mobility of migrants - Social mobility, migration and skills.
The author examines social mobility in the enlarged EU by analysing the work sequences of 1865 movers and stayers in Poland. Using indicators of upward and downward social mobility, she explores the role of migration in careers. Her research shows that migration adds dynamism to work paths and contributes to the improvement of people's working lives. It also suggests that agency and reflexivity guide the acquisition of tacit skills during migration, resulting in various patterns of social mobility.
