MORENO MARQUEZ, Gorka; IGLESIAS MARTINEZ, Juan  y  FERNANDEZ GARCIA, Mercedes. The impact of the crisis on the integration process of ecuadorians in Spain. Sophia [online]. 2017, n.23, pp.265-284. ISSN 1390-8626.

This article aims to analyze the real impact of the economic downturn on Ecuadorians living in Spain, and how these effects have influenced their social insertion process and expectations of social mobility, both for the first and the second generation. For this purpose, data extracted from EPOERE, a quantitative survey on Ecuadorian population, have been used. The main results of this study show how the downturn has bitterly bitten this population, producing a high increase in both unemployment and vulnerability. However, it is also noteworthy that in the same period there has been a high administrative and legal stabilization and the rooting process has improved and deepened. These last factors have played an attenuating role in the crisis and have enabled a response in better conditions than other groups. In this article, we also provide some reflections on public policies in the field of attention to the migrant population, both for the present moment and in a post-crisis context, for the medium and long term. In this second post-crisis scenario aspects such as the educational expectations of immigrants’ offspring and the possibilities of upward social mobility through the school take great relevance.

Palabras clave : International migrations; economic crisis; integration; Ecuador; Spain.
