Dreaming of Sweden – Lifestyle migration among young Latvians and Romanians

posted in: Meetings, News | 0

Caroline Adolfsson and Henrik Emilsson from YMOBILITY Swedish team presented the article “Dreaming of Sweden – Lifestyle migration among young Latvians and Romanians” at the International Conference on Immigration and Labour Market Integration in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The theme of the workshop was Youth migrants, and the YMobility team talked about why young Latvians and Romanians choose to come to Sweden despite difficulties finding employment. The findings from interviews show that many of the young migrants did not chose to move to Sweden for the short-term economic opportunities, but rather a longing for a different life-style and an overall improved sense of well-being.
