Le recenti strategie insediative della comunità rumena in Sicilia

Abstract: The Recent Settlement Strategies of the Romanian Community in Sicily

In recent years, in Italy the composition of migration stream has undergone signifi cant changes. Some reasons refer to the short-time (eg, the “Arab Spring”), but other events, such as the entry into the European Union of some countries, may have durable social, economic and cultural effects. This is the case of the Romanian migration to Italy. In Sicily this flow has a greater importance than in other regions and deserves special attention from both researchers and policy makers. In this paper we analyze some settlement aspects of migration of Romanians and the related process of integration.

Keywords: Immigration, Sicily, Romania.
