Radosław Polkowski works as a researcher at the Scottish Government. From 2013 and 2016, he was a fellow in the FP7 Marie-Skłodowska Curie ‘ChangingEmployment’ programme and obtained his PhD in 2017 from the University of Strathclyde for a thesis on East-West migration in Europe with a focus on new immigration destinations: Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Poland. He has extensive expertise in relation to migration in East Asia, in particular South Korea, which he gained through postdoctoral research at the Academy of Korean Studies (2017). He taught on the political economy of East Asia and South Korea as a visiting lecturer at the University of Wrocław (2016-2017), wrote articles for major newspaper media in South Korea and runs an analytical blog focusing on social affairs in that country. Of additional special interest both within the academy and in the policy community is his media work which embraces both photographic exposure and video presentations. His photographic work has received two awards, and he has completed a documentary film, Our Kingdom, about migrant workers in Northern Ireland.
