Nowiak visits the research group

The research group "Challenges in Advanced Democracies" invites to a stimulating presentation. Wojciech Nowiak from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland, Faculty of Political Science and Journalism, will give a talk on "Welfare policy changes in Poland" at our research group seminar on October 24th.

Poland is a particularly interesting country from a welfare perspective; it was the only EU country that experienced economic growth during the financial crisis in 2009; and with respect to labour migration to Norway, Polish individuals constitute a substantial share of it, creating interesting dilemmas for the Norwegian welfare state (since labour migrants within the EU are granted the same social- and welfare rights as natives).
