    Abstract

    This paper analyses the determinants of the Romanian temporary labour migration during the transition period. By using a 10% sample of the Romanian 2002 Census we try to assess the importance of the gender bias for the migration decision. The main questions raised are “Do migration determinants differ according to gender?” and “Do local norms influence the propensity to migrate of women and that of men?”. The results prove the existence of important differences between the migration decision of men and that of women as well as the influence of cultural norms and gender roles on the latter’s decision to migrate.
