The article presents the main findings of the basic paper contributors at the workshop under the above title. The aim was to increase gender awareness and open channels of discussion on the new migration from Bulgaria by gender. The authors have delivered papers on gender dimension issues of the emigration process in Bulgaria since 1989 onwards and have discussed them with representatives of the official (executive) institutions and relevant NGOs. Data from the National Statistical Institute, in particular the last Population Census (2001) and a sample survey in 2003 are used to shed light on patterns of people's mobility in gender perspective in the last 15 years and in the years to come - by age, reason for migration, education, ethnic group, geographical destination of the Bulgarian migrants, etc. Gender aspects of external migration statistics, labour market performance and policy and social consequences are considered. In conclusion implications are given in two aspects: concerning improvement of migration statistics by gender and concerning building an adequate national policy towards the ongoing migration processes, in particular in view of the soon integration of Bulgaria into the EU.
