Migrations have moulded Balkan societies. In the multiethnic empires
migrations were very common, and in the modern era, economic reasons led
millions of people to go abroad as overseas emigrants before World War I,
as Gastarbeiter in the 1960s and 70s, or as economic migrants since 1990.
In addition, many people had to leave their homes as political refugees or
as victims of ethnic cleansing. But Balkan countries were and are also
hosts to immigrants and refugees, and they have witnessed enormous
rural-urban migrations. This volume, the first part of a selection of
conference papers, focusses on historical and cultural aspects of
migration in, from and to Southeastern Europe.
