  • Migration and crisis: what the experience of Ukraine reveals
    minority directly through an employer private agencies and private individuals providing employment Ukrainian workers transfer over 60 of the remittances personally through friends relatives courier drivers and only about 40 through banks by post or other organizations Employment Niche of Ukrainian immigrants spreads gradually albeit slowly from the secondary market for vacancies towards skilled labor All this means a further increase in the social value of migrant networks forming a developed migration system that connects Ukraine with a number of host countries including the EU The findings of the new survey made the relationship between the two main reasons for the departure of Ukrainian labor emigrants low wages and unemployment even more distinct in favor of the former 79 vs 11 This widening gap between the two major causes of emigration indicates lack of investment in the development i e investments in long term structural projects that will ensure the wage growth and jobs for a longer period But it also points to the formation of a single social space which includes Ukraine and countries of destination The results of the household survey established that young people today are not able to find employment in Ukraine A few months earlier in November 2012 of the five thousand people polled by online recruitment site HeadHunter 48 of young specialists with higher or incomplete higher education the average age of the respondents was 30 years expressed serious intentions of leaving Ukraine to work abroad primarily in Europe USA Canada Australia another 43 said they sometimes considered such a possibility Among the main reasons for leaving the youth mentioned the lack of a good future for themselves and their families in Ukraine low wages lack of opportunity for a professional fulfillment unstable political situation the possibility for normal low status work abroad and the easiness of starting a business Among the positive reasons when choosing the destination country they stated high educational level in the West and the availability of scholarships In recent years the number of migrants from Ukraine grew primarily due to family reunification i e mostly because of the young people leaving for studies and work in the host countries One of the countries that are the most popular destinations for Ukrainian students is Germany According to the latest household survey Germany occupies a remarkably higher position in comparison with other countries in regards of the number of Ukrainian labour immigrants with higher education 90 vs 19 in Hungary and Spain which share the second position The Ukrainian immigration system which developed particularly in the years of the economic crisis has become a basis for further integration of the current labor migration and the migration of skilled professionals by expanding the space of horizontal mobility Thus the question arises whether or not this Ukrainian trend is a part of a broader process that makes the effectiveness of migration policies dependent on building a horizontal principle of the formation of regulatory mechanisms with the simultaneous participation of host and donor societies
