Summary/Abstract: The article addresses the problem of the Polish emigrants who left the country after its accession to the EU and nowadays return to Poland. The author begins with the introduction of definitions and statistical data of the phonomemon, including its volume, dynamics and directions. Next, the implications of these returns for the domestic labour market, social policy and other policies are discussed. Special attention is given to the role of government and the dilemmas related to political reaction to the returns: the concept of reactive and active policy is presented, as the first aims at minimising the negative effects of returns on economy, while the second focuses on stimulating the return migration.
