In the public discourse Croatia is primarily seen as a country of emigration rather than immigration but the trends of labour mobility in the past decade indicate that Croatia is no longer only a country of emigration. It is increasingly becoming a country of labour immigration, although the number of (registered) foreign workers is not large. Since there are no data on the origin, status, quality of life and orientations of foreign workers in Croatia, this exploratory research is focused on acquiring the first insights into their social position within Croatian society. The research determined the basic demographic characteristics of foreign workers, their geographical origin, reasons for their immigration, main trends in social exclusion and discrimination, as well as the sustainability of their immigration. In addition, the research gave insights into social ties and contacts of foreign workers within Croatian society, as well as their ties with relatives and friends in other countries. Finally, the life plans and orientation of immigrants were disclosed.
