Brain Drain: Trends in Bulgarian Emigration
From Jeff Layne
How does emigration affect countries of origin? Are they losing their most educated people? Do their economies benefit, or do they suffer from emigration? Dr. Desislava Pedeva-Fazlic of CSU, Chico’s History Department, was born and raised in the Eastern European country of Bulgaria. She earned her BA in history and journalism from the American University in Bulgaria and came to Chico in 2000, later graduating successfully in 2002. In this presentation she explores Bulgarian emigration trends and looks at how they fit into a larger pattern of recent Eastern European emigration. Join Dr. Pedeva-Fazlic as she shares her personal story while also examining it from a historical perspective!
