Summary/Abstract: The economic and political instability over the past three decades has led to significant emigration from Bulgaria. Throughout this period the net migration is negative. Hence, there are a number of consequences in the demographic, economic and social aspect. The effects of emigration are various and it is difficult to be measured. They are mainly related to the negative impact on the number and structure of the population. As a result, although indirectly, they have a significant impact on other demographic, economic and social spheres. To a great extent these processes depend on the size of the emigration flows, the type of emigrants, the structure and size of the economy, the labor conditions and the labor market of the sending country. The relation between the country`s emigration processes and the economic and political development of a country is not one-way street. On the one hand emigration influences the economic and state development, on the other hand the state of the economy and the political stability affect the emigration processes, with the most noticeable impact on the labor emigration. In this article, Bulgaria is considered as a sending country. The aim of the authors to present and explain some demographic and socio-economic effects of emigration for Bulgaria after 2007.
