Summary/Abstract: The recent Romanian migration abroad is little known and studied scientifically, despite the fact that it is a current and largely debated topic, due to its social, economic and political consequences. Clarifying and building the identity of the second generation of Romanians living in Spain is a phenomenon that deserves special analysis. The migrants’ identity is understood as a result of intersectorial identification, which requires an interdisciplinary approach. The present article tackles the identity of the second generation of migrants from the perspective of the intercultural and transnationalism paradigms and aims to answer the following questions: What are the differences between the first and the second generations of migrants? Why do some of the migrants’ children declare themselves Spaniards? Do they want to come back to their home country? Do they speak Romanian? In what circumstances do they use the Romanian language?
