Abstract

This study explores the different experiences of integration among Polish and Latvian female migrants living in Lincolnshire, a rural county in England. Specifically, it contrasts the ways in which engagement with the local business community (through entrepreneurship) and engagement though community spaces (in this case schools) offer different routes to integration through social capital creation. New insights can inform targeted support for female migrants and provide a deeper understanding of the complex cultural factors that influence both entrepreneurial and social networks.
