2) Presentation of contemporary migration-related research projects, in which the theories, terms and methods proposed by F. Znaniecki were applied.

  • Adaptation of terms used in the works of F. Znaniecki:
    • humanistic coefficient (research results observed through the humanistic sociology perspective, sense and meanings assigned to the experience of migration by research participants),
    • different ways of defining migration situation,
    • relevance of the assimilation scheme presented in The Polish Peasant in Europe and America,
    • valuation of space by migrants and their ecological standing,
