Abstract :
[en] In this article, we examine migration as one strategy used by Southern European EU citizens in reaction to the global financial and economic crisis. First of all, we will present the main sociodemographic characteristics of these new migrants and demonstrate how they resemble or differ from preceding EU South-North migratory waves. Then we will discuss the political response adopted by southern and northern EU Member States in reaction to these new flows. And we will finish with a series of conclusions that this migratory episode allows us to reach regarding the EU’s management of migratory issues with third countries.
