Re-thinking fatherhood and manhood among Polish migrant fathers in Norway


Being the biggest ethnic minority group in Norway, Poles not only dominate in the labour immigration, but also rank first on the list of family immigration to the country. At the same time, the lack of research on parenting and gender roles among intra-European migrant families may reflect that the Polish migrant families, who have migrated to Western Europe after 2004, are culturally assumed to be more similar to the host countries’ populations. This article therefore aims at filling that gap by exploring the Polish migrant fathers’ conceptualisations of fatherhood and manhood in the migratory context. This article scrutinises the ways Polish migrant fathers interpret the perceived changes in their parenting styles and practices after the emigration from Poland and settling with their families in Norway. It identifies and discusses three main theoretical categories, developed with the content analysis method: encountering work-life balance, re-evaluating family life, child and parenting, and reconquering manhood.
