McCollum and Findlay (2011) Employer and labour provider perspectives on Eastern European migration to the UK McCollum and Findlay (2011) examine how the role played by East European migrants in the UK labour market has altered over time. The study examines UK employers’ motivations for employing migrants from Eastern Europe and associated migration channels. In so doing, the study demonstrates the prominent role played by Eastern European migrants in the labour market. Findings show how the perspectives of those who recruit and employ Eastern European migrants are linked to the production and representation of the region’s migratory flows to the UK. Also see Jack (2009) for a study which investigates the impact Eastern European migrant workers have had on the Scottish tourism industry, Tindal et al. (2014b) for a study of immigration policy and constitutional change from the perspective of Scottish employers and industry and Danson and Jentsch (2009) for analysis of the rural labour market and the value that employers place on migrant labour.

Moskal (2013a) Circulating capitals between Poland and Scotland: A transnational perspective on European labour mobility Through examining the complex reality of Polish migration to Scotland, Moskal (2013a) highlights migrant commitment to both Poland and Scotland. This example is presented as a challenge to the concept of the ‘brain drain’ – which the author contends should instead be considered as a circulation of economic, social and cultural capital within a newly shaped European space. Moskal (2013a) highlights the increasingly transnational nature of the European labour market and migrant mobility. The gains and losses that Polish migrants experience (both at home in Poland and in Scotland) as a result of the decision to migrate are also explored. See also Moskal (2013b) for a further study which explores migrants’ use of social, cultural and economic capital and transnational connections, Moskal (2014) which covers a range of concepts including the family, social and cultural capitals. Also see Pietka (2011) which examines the concept of community and Trevena et al. (2013) for a study of migrant mobility. See Lassalle et al. (2011) for a study of Polish entrepreneurs in Scotland.

Shubin and Dickey (2013) Integration and mobility of Eastern European migrants in Scotland This study of migrant integration challenges existing social policy frameworks by drawing attention to the different patterns of working and living being generated by migrant mobility. With a focus on Eastern European workers, Shubin and Dickey (2013) explore the interplay between migrant mobility and employment across Scotland. As a result, the authors offer a reconceptualised view of integration which takes account of these novel patterns. Their analysis of migrant movement, employment and integration rests on their analysis of survey and interview data. See also Shubin (2012a) which examines the mobility of Eastern European Migrants in the context of religion and exclusion in rural Scotland and similarly Shubin (2012b) which finds that the church fails to adequately consider the complexities of Eastern European migration experiences. In turn, this failure hinders integration. See Trevena et al. (2013) who examine patterns and determinants of internal mobility among post-accession Polish migrants.
