In the focus of the field research carried out by Assist. Prof. Plamena Stoyanova in the city of Sofia in the period 12-20 May 2021 were interviewed respondents whose siblings live abroad. Among the interviewees, an interesting trend emerged – most of those remaining in Bulgaria, in fact, had their own period in their lives in which they resided outside the country – as students or as workers. By that time they had seriously considered the possibility of emigration. Eventually they made the decision to return with the firm intention of living in Bulgaria.
