Abstract

Emigration is a well-established response in Malta to a severe pressure of population on resources. In this paper Maltese emigration is used as a case study to illustrate the range of factors which have influenced the level, direction and composition of international migration in recent years. The Department of Emigration in Malta provides a wide range of reliable data, which can be tested against immigration data for the major destination countries. The importance of government involvement in the migration process, both at origin and destination, is emphasized, and the problems arising from an active emigration programme in Malta are assessed. The spatial pattern of emigration by Maltese localities is related to the island's social and economic geography by multiple regression analysis.
