Description

Population migration, just about everywhere in the modern world, has become an irrepressible process of quantitative and qualitative evolution of the population. In the context of pronounced economic, socio-professional and demographic differences, migration has intensified both between regions and countries, as well as within the countries themselves. Nowadays population migration poses a multidimensional spatial, demographic, economic, social and political problem, while fostering a number of complex and often mutually interlinked and conditioned factors. Almost throughout human history, a large number of migrants have moved to other places in order to seek better living conditions or security from different dangers. It is common knowledge that developed countries are immigrant countries, whereas undeveloped countries are emigrant countries. The municipality of Dragash is a very characteristic region in terms of migration and belongs in the group of emigrant areas. This area includes the southern end part of Kosovo, with an isolated geographic position and quite far from developed urban centers, where the degree of economic and social development is very low. The study of the economic effects of external migration on the municipality of Dragash, with all their complexities, is of great importance for the recognition of the actual situation and future development trends. The migration phenomenon is accompanied by consequences of different nature, which may be losses but also benefits. Losses and/or benefits may be economic, social, demographic, political, etc. Migration of the active population (labor force), abandoning of agricultural lands, migration of qualified people, dealing with integration difficulties in the new country, assimilation, impact on the overall demographic development, etc., are some of the negative consequences or losses that brings the emigration from the municipality of Dragash. On the other hand, these migrations carry a variety of benefits such as, introduction of novelties, financial assistance to the family and country of origin, the possibility for young people to get educated in the scientific centers of other countries, etc.

The economic effects of external migration on the municipality of Dragash

Pristina, Kosovo

Population migration, just about everywhere in the modern world, has become an irrepressible process of quantitative and qualitative evolution of the population. In the context of pronounced economic, socio-professional and demographic differences, migration has intensified both between regions and countries, as well as within the countries themselves. Nowadays population migration poses a multidimensional spatial, demographic, economic, social and political problem, while fostering a number of complex and often mutually interlinked and conditioned factors. Almost throughout human history, a large number of migrants have moved to other places in order to seek better living conditions or security from different dangers. It is common knowledge that developed countries are immigrant countries, whereas undeveloped countries are emigrant countries. The municipality of Dragash is a very characteristic region in terms of migration and belongs in the group of emigrant areas. This area includes the southern end part of Kosovo, with an isolated geographic position and quite far from developed urban centers, where the degree of economic and social development is very low. The study of the economic effects of external migration on the municipality of Dragash, with all their complexities, is of great importance for the recognition of the actual situation and future development trends. The migration phenomenon is accompanied by consequences of different nature, which may be losses but also benefits. Losses and/or benefits may be economic, social, demographic, political, etc. Migration of the active population (labor force), abandoning of agricultural lands, migration of qualified people, dealing with integration difficulties in the new country, assimilation, impact on the overall demographic development, etc., are some of the negative consequences or losses that brings the emigration from the municipality of Dragash.
