Abstract

This chapter examines the role of migration and migrant remittances in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. It discusses the evolution of emigration from the region following the fall of the Berlin Wall, providing an historical reference to the years of socialism; it surveys the effects of remittances on the origin areas taking into account the existence of 'reverse flows'; and, analyses remittance behaviour drawing on the empirical findings from a purposive quota sample of Bosnian-Herzegovinian and Ukrainian migrants in the United Kingdom.
