In the deteriorating socio-economic environment emerged after the financial crunch of 2008, EU citizens have used EU mobility rights as a resilience strategy in response to the crisis. This panel focuses on migration of EU citizens from South European EU to North European EU countries – a topic that has not yet been systematically studied. The panel brings together papers that are comparative in nature and examine two crucial issues. Firstly, the papers identify the scale and nature of these new flows and describe processes of the social and labour market integration of new migrants in receiving countries. Secondly, the papers look at politics and policies both from the perspective of the sending and the receiving nations. More specifically, the authors will explore new policy initiatives aimed at restricting and/or encouraging the mobility of Southern European citizens in the specific institutional context of the European Union. This session brings together some of the authors of the forthcoming edited book Old Routes, New Migrations: SouthNorth Mobility of EU Citizens in Times of Crisis to be published within series by Springer in 2015 under open access agreement as part of the IMISCOE research series.. This session brings the opportunity to present the findings of our collective work and to engage the audience in discussing the challenges and opportunities posed by this new migration.
