Rights and obligations of foreigners living in the Republic of Poland

Authors: Wisdom Ejebugha (ed.), Monika Gwiazda, Dagmara Jachacz, Joanna Oleszkowicz, Grzegorz Pawłowski, Tomasz Sieniow (ed.)

This publication is addressed to a particular group of migrants, the citizens of Nigeria, who came to Poland for various reasons and who made personal plans connected with Poland. Due to the fact that there are more and more such migrants in Poland, their problems are noticed not only by the Polish non-governmental organizations and state authorities, but also by international organizations. The United Nations and the European Union recognized the important problems of migration between Nigeria and Poland and they have decided to support the project “Migrant Rights: Nigerian-Polish Initiative”. We hope that thanks to noticing the problem of migration between the two countries by the international community we can improve the actual level of legal protection given to citizens of Nigeria in Poland.

The brochure includes a lot of useful information about the legalization of foreigners’ stay in Poland, about the access to employment, education and social services, and about their rights and obligations in case of the decisions on the expulsion from territory of Poland.

The project entitled “Migrant Rights: Nigerian-Polish Initiative” is financed within the European Commission-United Nations Joint Migration and Development Initiative, and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme.
