East European migration became a significant feature in the post 1990 Europe. Alt-hough migration based on family connections is the most frequently used form of legal entry into the European Union, and family structure influences (and it is influ-enced by) migration, in the European literature more attention has been paid to indi-vidual (labour) migration rather than family migration. This paper intends to be a re-view of studies on family migration from Romania. Through this study, 'family migra-Tion' is used to understand not only the migration of the whole family unit but also migration of individuals within the context of family.
