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.
