The EU trade bloc allowed post accession labour flow to occur after 2004, due to free movement of trade and migration between the members of the EU, this evidently contributed to globalisation as it allowed the widespread of development and variation to occur. For instance, after Poland joined the EU in 2004, they were allowed free movement between the UK, Sweden and Ireland, and their most preferable migration hotspot was the UK due to recruiting agencies. This lead to 600,000 poles migrating to the UK due to a number of pull factors such as higher wages - Poles earn £200 a month in Poland, where they can earn that in a week in the UK, also, the UK offers them political asylum, including benefits such as child benefits (even if their children are still living in Poland), unemployment benefits etc. after working in the country for at least 12 months. The polish migrants have contributed to globalisation and the intergration of the world as they brought their cultural into the UK - they opened up Polish stores, selling polish produce. Furthermore, Polish culture is now taught in UK schools, in order for children to understand the culture of their classmates.


Im not sure at the top of my head what else they did to contribute to globalisation, however the main thing you need to write about is the free movement of trade and people within these EU countries.
Also, maybe you could search up NAFTA case studies. If you find any, can you please tell me, as they would help with my exam.


hope this helped!
