This research broadly aims to analyze the disputable effects of migration in Romania and more specifically we look at how social change occurs for different ethnic groups. The main focus is on Romanians and Roma, but other ethnic groups will be taken into consideration, such as Hungarians or Germans.

The study will aim to analyze how social and financial remittances influence consumption patterns and gender relations; how relations between migrants and homestyers change due to migration, and how migrants’ entrepreneurship emerges. We thus aim to better grasp the relationship between ethnicity, migration, development and social change and to advance the research agenda in the field.
