We cordially invite you to the OWIM seminar, during which the report entitled “New Poles-Krakowians – ‎naturalization and anchoring in the ‎urban space”‎

The seminar will take place on May 30 at 11:00 am on Zoom – registration link below. ‎

The number of naturalized citizens in Poland is growing. The status of a Polish citizen can be obtained in three ways: by acquiring citizenship, granting it by the President of the Republic of Poland, and by being recognized as a Polish citizen. The group of new citizens is invisible in official statistics. However, its diversity is evident not only in terms of the country of birth but often also in the reasons for applying for citizenship, civic attitude, observing the traditions of the country of origin, and religion. The report presents the results of research on naturalized citizens in Krakow. First, the structure of this community was outlined based on the available quantitative data. The second part presents the results of qualitative research, which covered new Poles-Krakowians born in many countries and cultural circles. The study contains an analysis of the most important dimensions affecting the identity of new citizens. ‎
