In late June 2023, Plamena Stoyanova, PhD conducted a field study in Yambol. The study focused on interviews with immigrant families who returned to Bulgaria while another family member emigrated. These interviews helped trace the dynamics of changing roles between those who returned and those who stayed. The study highlights an essential aspect of the research as many families in Bulgaria have multiple family members who emigrated, and not all of them leave for good. To get a more accurate picture of these relationships, interviews were conducted with multiple family members.
