Mapping through experimental evidence schemes that influence sociological migration between East and West

For many years the iconic figure of the EU constructed a not entirely rational image that enlargement only promises to be a snowball of growth. Although to a large extend this is true, on the background of the global economic crisis, it becomes apparent that the newly democratic Central European states are interlocked in a sort of absorption system. At the heart of this process lies the recalibration of challenges that regional and community policymakers have to face. We are witnessing the migration of challenges from West to East and from East to West. Nevertheless although this situation is most evident in the presence of anxieties around the bold EU initiatives, it is this researcher’s opinion that it is not an indicator capable to question EU competence, but rather the need for a more comprehensive understanding of these challenges. Having roots of an economic bloc, the European Union sometimes forgets that with economic opportunity, also socio-demographic challenges appear. It is an imbalance between the way in which Central European countries are perceived and the reality of their confrontation with now continental challenges. EU enlargement has surged ahead but with little research upon the socio-demographic impact upon youth communities in Central European countries.
