Strategii de mobilitate în Sâncrai - Hunedoara
Mobility strategies in Sancrai - Hunedoara
Abstract (Rezumat în limba engleză): This article intends to describe the changes of migrational flows in the last forty years (from the perspective of the presence / absence, volume and direction) in Călan area in the Hunedoara county. In order to point out this dynamic we have depicted the phenomena of territorial mobility in five different moments, which correspond to some important structural changes (collectivization, industrialisation, land reform, the possibility to emigrate, growing unemployment rate) Our premise is that an efficient method for identifying the particularities of a region is to thoroughly analyse the specific of a community belonging to that area. As a consequence, the field research focused on Sâncrai village which orbits mainly around the town Călan (the community was chosen, according to the principle of exemplarity, for its significance in perceiving the area in its entire, real functionality). The collected data are being confronted and completed with quantitative information (the quest was completed by the people of two other localities - the Călan town and the village Strei).
