This issue became even more up-to-date in the last decade of the 20th century, a “decade of transition” for Eastern Europe, characterised by the movement of new waves of emigrants and gastarbeiters to Western Europe, America and Australia. We are faced with an ever increasing diversity and intensity of the movement of people, information, goods and services, both within the separate Balkan states and across their borders. Often, current social processes demonstrate a clear continuity with traditional social practices and cultural patterns; referring to a “Balkan culture of migrations and mobility” is becoming more and more justified.
