About the project civic engagement of migrants

About the project
The aim of the project is to analyze the forms and extent of civic-political local and transnational participation of Czech migrants in the UK, one of their three most common EU destinations (i.e. participation oriented towards the countries of origin and settlement as well as to the EU). The manifestations of participation are being examined from the perspectives of transnationalism and the theory of social capital in relation to the migrants’ own subjectively perceived economic and sociocultural integration in the host country, and in relation to the character of civic-political participation of a sample of inhabitants of the Czech Republic who have never migrated internationally. The research is being conducted as a qualitative analysis of narratives of Czech post-1989 migrants living in the United Kingdom (UK) and of Czech non-migrants.
