EXTERNAL LABOR MIGRATION OF UKRAINIANS: SCALE, CAUSES, CONSEQUENCES
Section: DEMOGRAPHIC PROCESSES
Language: Ukrainian
Abstract: The role of external migration in the modern and future development of Ukraine is defined. Its main components are considered, differing in the duration of their stay abroad, the composition of participants, the impact on the overall social and economic situation in the country and the life of migrant families. The short agrarian migration, short non agrarian migration, long migration, brain drain, educational migration and going to a permanent place of residence are highlighted, their effects are characterized from position of Ukrainian economy and migrants household. The scale and texture of migratory flows in the countries of destination is clarified. The author highlights various estimates of the scale of migration and explains the reasons for these differences, she leads calculations of migration mobility of difference groups of Ukrainian population. It is shown that external migrations in modern Ukraine perform the functions of social elevators, and declaring intentions of leaving the country has become a mode of behavior. The reasons of international migration are studied and the authors conclusion follows: the main factor is differences between wage in Ukraine and potential remuneration in the country of destination, but the important role plays mentality. This thesis author illustrates by examples of Poland and Hungary: Poland is leader of Eastern European countries according to reforms, the economic growth, living standards and simultaneously polish population emigration rate; Hungary economy remains poorly reformed, the economic growth is low, but migration mobility is poor. Due to traditional high mobility of Ukrainians the idea stopping of external migration solely through the growth of wages is unreasonable. The possibilities of state influence on the migration behavior of the population are outlined and the most effective actions, from the point of view of the author, are highlighted.
Key words: external migration, migration behavior, reasons for leaving, consequences of external migration.
