Accession and Migration Changing Policy, Society, and Culture in an Enlarged Europe

by Yordanka Valkanova

Part of the Studies in Migration and Diaspora Series

Accession and Migration Changing Policy, Society, and Culture in an Enlarged Europe Synopsis

The expansion of the European Union in May 2004 through the entry of ten countries from Central and Eastern Europe, has generated considerable media interest - interest which was revived by further expansion in January 2007 when Bulgaria and Romania became the latest nations from the east to join. Rather than focus exclusively on changes within the EU labour market and related policy debates, this book offers a careful, grounded analysis of the social and cultural processes bound up with migration flows between Britain and Bulgaria, placing these flows in the wider European perspective. As such, Accession and Migration will be of interest not only to migration scholars but also to policy makers at local, national and international levels.

Accession and Migration Changing Policy, Society, and Culture in an Enlarged Europe Press Reviews

'This volume is a vital contribution to the growing body of research into post-EU enlargement migration, closely analysing the hitherto neglected phenomenon of eastward, as well as westward, migration within Europe. Through a range of fascinating Bulgarian and British case-studies, Accession and Migration sheds light on the complexities of post-enlargement migration, highlighting especially the vulnerabilities, anxieties and inequalities embedded within these movements.' Kathy Burrell, De Montfort University, UK 'This important contribution to the understanding of the new wave of European migrations provides interesting answers to the question that intrigues Bulgarian citizens: why, when many of their co-nationals seek to settle in the UK, some British are attracted to move to Bulgaria - an interdisciplinary and insightful analysis, providing complementary Western and Eastern perspectives on East-West and West-East migrations.' Anna Krasteva, New Bulgarian University, Bulgaria
