ABSTRACT. One of the important processes that took place in Poland after the accession to the EU has become migration, especially to other member states. The main aim of this study was to evaluate its determinants. In the theoretical part of the article, which became the basis for empirical research, review of the literature has been made. The authors focused primarily on the assessment of the conditions of emigration of Poles in the EU. They analyzed both economic and institutional factors that determine the existence of enterprising entities in the country. This was a consequence of the assumption of multiplicity of variables affecting migration processes and showed their importance for the Polish migration abroad. The analysis demonstrates that the potential factors that attract entrepreneurial entities are both the quality of governance and the economic freedom in the country of destination.
