Pros And Cons In Discussing The Migration Of Romanian Workers In The Other Member States Of The European Union


  • Razvan Stefan RAB

    () (The Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies, Romania)


The start point of contrasting advantages and disadvantages of the international migration of Romanian workers is an inventory of the multiple effects of this phenomenon on the national economy as a whole, on households and on individuals. Labour force migration is mainly motivated by economic reasons. Migrant workers expect to get for equal work higher incomes in another EU member state than in Romania. Differences existing between the EU member states in terms of GDP per capita, the average income per inhabitant or the real income of citizens, as well the differences concerning the capacity of the member states to assure decent living standards are the determining factors of the migration flows inside the European Union. The paper discusses the concept of labour motivated migrational climate specific to a country in a given moment. It integrates and interpretes economic, political, social, cultural and geographical aspects that act as pull- or as push-factors for those migrating for economic reasons.
