Abstract:In the context of the economic crisis, immigration inflows into the Czech Republic declined rapidly in 2009, following a trend already started in 2008. According to national statistics, about 39 000 immigrants entered the country in 2009, which was nearly half the number of entries registered in the previous year (78 000). In parallel, outflows almost doubled, growing from about 6 000 to almost 12 000 persons. In total, net migration declined by almost two‐thirds.
