Talent Abroad: A Review of Romanian Emigrants
In recent years, Romania has undergone major economic, social and political transformations.
Given the significant emigration of the Romanian population and the recognition of
the contributions of the diaspora, Romanian authorities are seeking to better understand
this pool of talent residing abroad, which has great potential to contribute to the
economic and social development of Romania. This review provides the first comprehensive
portrait of the Romanian diaspora in OECD countries. By profiling Romanian emigrants,
this review aims to strengthen knowledge about this community and thus help to consolidate
the relevance of the policies deployed by Romania towards its emigrants.
