Abstract

Poland being a EU's periphery has its own peripheries. These are Eastern regions which, in turn, also have their centres and peripheries. The latter - rural areas far from urban centres, can be called peripheral peripheries. Living ways and conditions of their inhabitants were particularly affected by the transformation after 1989. The common characteristics of the new situation are unemployment, growing dependence on irregular incomes, economic and social instability and insecurity, growing socio-economic differentiation implying impoverishment of a considerable part of the local population. Reactions of inhabitants to this situation is a mixture of passive adaptation to the declining living standards and incomes as well as some active strategies, the most often being education and irregular incomes, economic and social instability and security, growing socio-economic differentiation implying impoverishment of a considerable part of the local population. Reactions of inhabitants to this situation is a mixture of passive adaptation to the declining living standards and incomes as well as some active strategies, the most often being education and irregular job migration. - (BJ)
