The paper is focused on economic adaptation of migrants which is understood as the process of their integration into the economic system of the host community. It involves the acquisition of knowledge about its functioning, assimilation of economic norms adopted in it, formation of practical skills of economic interaction, and accumulation of work experience. Economic adaptation aims at the realization of interests and needs, at the first stages related to economic survival, and at the final stages associated with the achievement of material well-being. Accordingly, economic adaptation involves, firstly, getting a job or starting business, and secondly, labor, professional, commercial self-realization, which is confirmed by career advancement, obtaining a more prestigious job and a higher economic status, wage growth or increase business profitability. It is shown that migration itself is a value-neutral process and the benefits and threats associated with migration are, for the most part, only the consequences of political and managerial decisions. Threats increase when the paths of adaptation of migrants are blocked by artificial barriers, while benefits appear as a result of concerted actions of migrants, the host society, and the state, based on respect, recognition and mutual interest.
