Bulgarian Emigration to Spain: The Impact of the Global Economic Crisis

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The last decade has been marked by an increased emigration of Bulgarians to Spain. The 150 000 Bulgarian citizens currently living in the country represent one of the largest non-Spanish speaking community in Spain. This new migration phenomenon is explained by the removal of the visa restrictions for Bulgarians in 2001, the liberal immigration policy of Spain and the boom of the Spanish economy, especially in the construction sector. Since the entry of Bulgaria into the European Union in 2007, Bulgarian citizens have profited from the provisions for free movement of labor with some EU states. In January 2009 Spain lifted its restrictions for Bulgarians and they can now work in the country without the requirement of a work permit.

At the same time, however, Spain has experienced the negative impact of the current economic crisis, especially in the construction sector which employs foreign labor. In this context, the aim of the paper is to analyze how the economic downturn has influenced migration trends from Bulgaria to Spain. The paper demonstrates that despite some increase in return migration, the majority of Bulgarians working in Spain choose to remain in the country and search for jobs for family reasons and because of the worsening employment opportunities in Bulgaria.
