Summary/Abstract: The main aim of the article is to analyze the dominant trends and determinants of migration processes from Eastern Partnership countries (EaP) to the European Union (EU) and Poland in the context of the state and EU migration policy. One of the important determi - nants is growing political and economic competition between the EU and Russia as main destinations for migrants from EaP countries. The article focuses on the key rules and instruments implemented within EU migration policy and its role in management of the human flows from the EaP countries as well as Poland’s position as a destination country for EaP citizens. The main hypotheses elaborated in the article are as follows: 1) migrants from EaP countries become (except the EU mobility) the most important source of desirable foreign workers, especially in Poland and CEE countries; 2) migration policy is an integral part of foreign policy and neighbourhood policy of the EU which is determined by the competition with Russia for political and economic influence in the region; 3) the last developments within Poland’s migration policy indicate the activities to attract migrants from EaP countries (Ukraine and Belarus in particular) to arrive and work in Poland.
