Diversity and the Bulgarian Labor Emigration Case

Author

Abstract

The last years the transformation of Bulgaria into a predominantly country of origin of migrants and the establishment of Bulgarian Diasporas abroad is a phenomenon that has attracted the interest of demographers, cultural anthropologists, historians, economists and sociologists. This study is based on the following statistical and other sources and aims to show the growth and characteristics of the Bulgarian labor migration in the period after the transition to a market economy in Bulgaria. The aim of the study is to reveal also the formation of regional communities in the European countries in which Bulgarian Diasporas were formed. An attempt is made to clarify the economic, social and psychological status of the Bulgarian migrants, as well as their integration in a multicultural society. One of the main questions is to reveal how the Bulgarian Diaspora affects diversity in the host-countries. Another aspect of the analysis is to identify the role of remittances as one of the manifestations of Bulgaria's integration into the international migration process, and an additional cash flow aimed at maintaining the financing of Bulgarian households.
