Indian middling migrants in Wroclaw: A study of migration experiences and strategies
AbstractThis article analyzes the migration experiences and strategies of Indian middle-class professionals living in Wrocław, Poland. Drawing on qualitative research, I explore the question of how and why they move to Wrocław. I argue that they see Wrocław not so much as a city of interest in Poland and as their chosen destination, but rather as an entry point to the developed world. For Indian migrants, moving to Wrocław is primarily a strategy for increasing social status and gaining new experiences that may be understood not only in terms of individualization processes but also in the context of building cultural capital.
