This article analyses the appearance and expansion of Polish irregular workers on the Belgian labour market. It discusses the development of the Polish migrant ‘community'. The problem is considered by examining the quantitative and qualitative transformations of migratory networks as well as changes in strategies of accumulation of various types of migratory capital. It is argued that the major change can be described as a shift from ethnic cooperation within the group to an in-group rivalry within the quasi-community.
