Abstract

This book follows a dual ambition, both theoretical and empirical. First, it

poses a discussion of conceptual frameworks for post-accession migrations

by taking into account complexities of the subject, especially methodological

ones. This volume also continues the scientific discussion and analysis

introduced in previous IMISCOE Research series works on the topic of

post-EU enlargement migration from CEE countries (Black, Engbersen,

Okólski & Panţîru 2010). By discussing new approaches in migration research,

like the concept of liquid migration, and research gaps, it provides

a variety of examples for both qualitative and quantitative approaches to

research. Second, it highlights behaviours and strategies of post-accession

migrants in the receiving labour markets and those upon return, integrating

the new group of migrating students. Admittedly, post-accession migrations

from CEE countries are still recent and difficult to grasp. There is a risk of

oversimplification and reductionism of this process, reflected at times by

policymakers and in the media. This leads us to make an effort to go beyond

a description of post-accession migrations. We aim to discern the

emerging patterns and mechanisms of movements in this particular period

of time, while questioning which aspects may be part of a transitionfrom

older, established mobility options versus those which seem to be new patterns

that may persist and hence alter the way we view processes and effects

of cross-state mobility and migration in Europe.
