Description:
Since 1989 Romania has experienced one of the largest emigration processes worldwide, with an estimated 3 million citizens leaving the country (Anghel et al. 2017, 35). The Enlargement process of the European Union with its freedom of movement has gradually expanded the possibilities of finding work abroad in Europe for Romanians.  However, many recent studies have shown the challenges faced by Romanian workers abroad: insecure and exploitative work relations (Hopfgartner et al. 2022; Cosma et al. 2020), difficult access to healthcare and social protection (Ratzmann 2022; Scheibelhofer 2022a; Blauberger and Schmidt 2014), institutionalized racism and racializing media discourses (Fox et al. 2012), criminalization and deportation practices (Vrăbiescu 2019) etc. Theoretically, scholars have focused on the regime of social rights for mobile EU citizens in destination countries (Scheibelhofer 2022b; Schmidt et al. 2018; Bruzelius et al. 2017), the transnational migration infrastructure enabling mobility (Voivozeanu 2021) as well as the role of knowledge asymmetries in administrative procedures for social entitlements (Ratzmann and Heindlmaier 2022).

We encourage studies with different methodologies and theoretical approaches that could add value to already established normative ways of doing research but also approaches that give space to alternative methodologies and critical theories. We are particularly interested in contributions focused on Eastern and Central Europe or that could sustain collaborations between scholars across borders and disciplines.

Articles that include Romania in their analyses are particularly welcomed, however, we are committed to expanding this focus.
