The Polish diaspora has produced a vibrant and unique civil society process identifiable alongside separate stages and dividing homing desires linked to Polish migration after the Second World War, during the Cold War and Solidarity and post-EU expansion. The diversification of Polish organizations and political campaigns over time has been shaped in relation to the country of settlement, other migrant spaces in the UK and to Poland. These are stratified along the lines of status, social resentment and diverging homing desires - yet similarly enabled by ethnic bonding and framed by diaspora narration along national lines. This analysis explores previously identified discourses of hostility with emerging findings of this follow-up project assessing the implications of Brexit on Polish civil society engagement. Two premises underline this paper: Polish civil society constitutes a significant network of support and platform for communicating with mainstream society and has grown considerably since EU-expansion but is characterized by internal divides. It is therefore of interest to analyze ways in which Brexit has compounded or bridged internal cleavages and divisions? Emerging findings will be presented with help of a follow-up phase of interviews with civil society representatives and opens up for a theoretical contributions and complexities associated with social capital, identity, community and solidarity. The qualitative data draws upon on interviews with representatives of Polish organizations in Greater London in 2018 and 2015-2016 and in previous periods comprised of over 120 in-depth interviews funded by the British Academy, John Fell and the Swedish Research Council.
