Summary/Abstract: In the last twenty years, Albania has been often associated with migration. Starting with only 127.639 emigrants in 1990, the stock of Albanian emigrants reached almost a million and a half in 2010 which means 45.4% of Albanian population. The Albanian migration in the beginning of the migration cycle (1990) was mainly male-led with a strong tendency of increased female migration in the following years. Main destination countries of Albanian migrants are Greece and Italy.
