In this study we will present the results of the migration questionnaires and analyse people’s possibility of migration regarded as a world-wide phenomenon. The territorial movement of people is related to the economic development and to the relationship between different countries around the world. Generally, the people migrate from the poorest regions towards the richer ones, where they can enjoy a better life. In Europe, people’s migration has multiple causes: precarious living conditions, social and personal insecurity, the overcrowding of some demographical areas, certain natural disasters, political and religious persecutions.
Romania, though not a popular destination for immigrants, has recently experienced a growing wave of immigration, mostly from The Republic of Moldova, Turkey and China, but also from Africa, the Middle East, and the former Soviet Union. In 2005, there were 133,000 immigrants living in Romania, 13,000 of them being refugees. More than half of the country's foreign-born residents originate from Moldova. Immigration is expected to increase in the future, as large numbers of Romanian workers leave the country while being replaced by foreigners. According to our National Department studying migration, Romania has evolved from a country of transit for illegal migrants to a country of destination. Within the European Union, the country has the second highest rate of immigration from non-EU countries, just behind Slovenia.
The Romanian transnational migration represents one of the most important social processes that our country had to face during the past two decades, involving over 3,5 million citizens. The majority of our compatriots have left, especially to work in countries such as Italy, Spain, France, England, Greece, and in countries from other continents. The biggest Romanian immigrant community from different European states is in Italy and Spain, and the migration phenomenon from Romania is still in process. The main purpose of this study is to answer three important questions: Who are those who have left from Romania to other European countries and the other way around? In what regions are they living and working?
Which are the most important reasons of their option for this country? In what measure living in a foreign society has influenced their cultural identity and their value options? Are they feeling at home abroad? The main research methods that we have used are the statistical method and the opinion inquiry based on questionnaires. The initial hypothesis, that Romanians living abroad have generally preserved their cultural identity, was confirmed by the results of the sociological field research.
But in a marked sign of how quickly the economies of Western Europe have deteriorated, foreign workers are now heading home, hoping to find better job prospects, or at least lower costs of living, in their native lands. So, we could say that the Romanian children born abroad, who are returning home together with their families, are now emigrants. In Craiova, as of 2012, 243,765 inhabitants live within the city limits, a decrease from the figures recorded in 2002, making it the sixth most populous city in Romania. Ethnic composition: Romanians: 237,233 (97.32%) Romanians Hungarians: 168 (0.06%) Hungarians Germans: 83 (0.03%) Germans Serbs: 34 (0.01%) Serbs Roma: 10,116 (4.15%) Roma Italians: 178 (0.06%) Italians Greeks: 188 (0.06%) Greeks and 471 others.
Concerning our school, we could say that there are studying not only Romanian children born abroad, in countries such as Italy, Spain, Germany, but also students whose families are from Arab countries, Greece, Republic of Moldova. Emigration and immigration are a major problem in Europe today. This problem requires will and soul in order to be solved !
