ABSTRACT
Trade aim of the paper is to present the size and dynamics of changes in the inflow from the Central and Eastern Europe to the selected countries of continental and overseas immigration starting from the fifties till the late eighties. In the analysis there are particularly stressed international movements which took place in the late eighties. The analysis covered such countries of continental immigration as West Germany, Austria and Sweden and such countries of overseas immigration as the United States, Canada and Australia. The data showing the inflow of immigrants from Central and Eastern Europe came from the analyzed countries of immigration. The results of the analysis show that in the particular decades immigration was differentiated for the analyzed countries of emigration and was connected mainly with the political events in some countries (Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland). The main flow of migrations from Central and Eastern Europe goes to West Germany. In the analyzed years this country admitted about 76% people leaving this European regions The size of inflow to all analyzed countries is particularly high in the case of immigrants from Poland and Yugoslavia (except years 1981 -89). In the last analyzed years it can be noted a clear increase in international migrations in such countries of Central and Eastern Europe such as Poland, Romania, the Soviet Union and Bulgaria. In the period under consideration a particular role in migratory movements from Central and Eastern Europe was played by refugee migrations.
