Abstract
This chapter addresses the necessity for "a theoretical, critical and political re-evaluation of citizenship politics in the age of globalization and transnationalization". It presents the main theoretical points of the study and a summary of its empirical outcomes. The chapter discusses the challenges of east&-west mobility in contemporary Europe and develops the theoretical framework of the study: the concepts of liminal Europeanness and whiteness in the context of Europe. It presents the narratives of Polish domestic workers with a focus on their perceptions of race and Europeanness. European citizens who move to another European Union country exercise their right to freedom of movement within the Union. The establishment of a fast-growing multicultural and multiethnic migrant community in this country triggered a great deal of attention from social researchers. The uses of whiteness to construct advantageous identities operate globally as well as more locally
