    [From the introduction]. In this paper I want to examine the prospects of Europeanization of the migration policy, and especially the border policy beyond accession. I argue that Eastern border policy in Poland will not be thoroughly Europeanized since the situation before and after Enlargement is different. Firstly, I will discuss the concept of Europeanization from the perspective of a former accession country. I will show how it differs from Europeanization discussed in relation to old EU-15. Then I will present the state of border management in Poland, especially in relation to its security agenda. In the end I will focus on the present situation of policy making through the lenses of Europeanization. The paper used both desk research methods and empirical studies conducted in 2003 and 2006.4 It takes into account the debates of the subsequent Alien Bills, where the strategies of the actors and the argumentation were studied. Moreover, the analysis uses the in-depth interview data gathered in Poland among the policy makers, secondary statistical sources and documentary data on Polish immigration policy developments.
