It is aimed at Polish ministries and relevant public administrations in order to strengthen their institutional capacity to design and implement a labour migration policy, in line with Poland`s needs and strategic priorities. The results will be a number of concrete results, including reports and working papers on best practices. We created two datasets based on the 582 BLAs we identified. The first dataset – BLA`s contract data sheet – used the contract as an observation unit.
The second dataset – BLAs DyadYear Dataset – uses the Dyad year as an observation unit. The Dyad Year dataset is structured to be analyzed by other scientists and contains a series of variables from other public datasets (full quote information is available in the corresponding codesbooks).

The emphasis is on labour migration agreements, unlike other bilateral agreements adopted by states that could have an impact on migrant workers, such as readmission agreements or coordination agreements for social security agreements.
