Abstract: The world’s population becoming double in the last 50-60 years, the increased differences in the levels of development recorded by different areas of the planet, and the accentuating free movement of people, make migration an implacable phenomenon in the contemporary era. Decision makers in rich countries need to realize that immigrants are more than just pawns on a chessboard. In this paper, we have tried to tackle a number of important aspects of the phenomenon of globalization, such as: the migration causes, the beneficial and less beneficial effects of the international movement of people, the characteristics of migration in the EU and the difficult situation of Romania as a result of the emigration of an impressive number of citizens. Praised by some people and criticized by others, stimulated by some and blocked by others, international labor migration has become an everyday phenomenon nowadays. The aim of this paper is to emphasize the implacable nature of international labor migration and to highlight the dimensions and implications of this phenomenon in the EU and, implicitly, in Romania.
