Summary/Abstract: The objective of this paper is to critically assess the framework of repatriation policy in Poland, with particular attention given to the role of local communities and non‑governmental organizations (NGOs). The author claims that the government still has not elaborated a sound answer to repatriation problems. Therefore, NGOs should play a more important role in immigration policy planning and management. The first section of the article presents the duties of the governmental bodies related to the repatriation process and social adaptation of repatriates. In the second section the author emphasizes the potential advantages of NGOs’ involvement in this process, and looks at existing good practices.
