Indian and Polish Migrant Organisations in the UK



Two main questions have driven this research: what are the characteristics of transnational associations of migrants? What are the main factors explaining the shape and contents of this associational transnationalism? This work is based on the systematic analysis of four case-studies: the Sikh human rights Group, the Indian Workers' Association in Birmingham, the Polish Scouting association (UK) and the Polish Catholic Mission. This paper successively examines the Indian and Polish associational fields in the UK. When analysing the four case studies, specific attention will be paid to the spatial distribution of the resources and practices of the organisations, before attempting to link up these formal characteristics with the internal and external constraints which affect their functioning. In doing so, particular attention will paid to the leadership patterns which prevail within these organisations, their relationships with other migrant organisations and the national and international contexts in which they are embedded.
