We cordially invite you to the CASPAR-OWIM seminar during which the latest OWIM demographic report “Economic and forced immigrants in Krakow in 2022” will be presented.

The seminar will take place on March 16th at 10:00 am on Zoom – link to register below.

The brutal Russian invasion of Ukraine from February 24, 2022 onwards has led to one of the biggest humanitarian crises in Europe since the Second World War. Krakow has become a stopping place for hundreds of thousands of war refugees in their escape from their homeland
to temporary homes in other parts of Poland and the world. Some refugees also decided to stay in Krakow for a longer period of time, thus contributing to a significant increase in the number of foreigners in the city. This report shows changes in the structure of the immigrant
population in Krakow in 2022 compared to 2021, 2020 and 2019 based on the latest data from various registers (e.g. ZUS, UMK registration information, MUW residence cards or declarations of entrusting work GUP foreigner). The report describes the significant demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the foreigners’ population in the city and identifies the places of greatest concentration of immigrants in Krakow. It also describes in detail their legal status and participation in the education system and the city’s economy.
