This essay will examine the socioeconomic consequences of outward migration in the post-Soviet country of Armenia, arguing that the economic dependency on labor migration to Russia has severe effects on economic and social structures.
The third wave of globalization is an era where the world is more interconnected than at any given point in history, where networks can be created and extended with the help of a mouse click, where transnational goods become accessible on a large scale, and capital flows have been developed. It is this phenomenon of globalization that plays a fundamental role in global migration patterns, enabling millions of people to leave their countries of origin in hope for a better life. Yet, with rapidly growing numbers of people on the move, caused by economic hardship, cultural disputes, natural disasters or war, events like the European Refugee crisis occur and have an immediate impact on demographics as much as the public attitudes towards migrants.
In 2013, approximately two hundred thirty-two million people were living temporarily or permanently in another country. 190,000 people alone are displaced Balkans, indicating that also in the post-Soviet states the topic of migrants and migration is of high interest. Ever since the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, continual patterns of migration processes in post-Soviet states have been witnessed. Next to increasing urbanization, the issue of short- and long-term outward migration has received growing attention of many scholars. Armenia is a small landlocked country and has been highly affected by population flows ever since the late 1980s. Under the Soviet Union's central economy, in an effort to obtain raw materials and energy resources from other Soviet States, Armenia spawned and grew an industrial sector for the purpose of providing manufactured goods. This industrial accomplishment was lost with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, when Armenia was forced to make a transition from a planned economy to market economy. The introduction of capitalism meant an economic collapse, contributing to inflation and the massive reduction of energy resources.
