[Dimitrova, Е. (2011). Fertility Changes in Bulgaria: Behavioural and Value Dimensions. Sofi a: "Professor Marin Drinov" Publ. Press, 205 pages] ISBN 978-954-322-447-1.
Изследването има за цел да проучи поведенческите и ценностните изменения, които съпътстват разгръщането на съвременния фертилен преход като част от Втория демографски преход в България. В първа глава е описана теоретичната рамка на изследването. Във втора глава са описани накратко измененията във фертилната картина на страната на макро-ниво. Анализът е съсредоточен върху динамиката на показателите за раждаемостта с акцент върху измененията през периода 1990-2008/9 г. В трета глава са разгледани измененията в репродуктивното поведение на българските жени. Представени са резултатите от три модела на преходите към първо, второ и трето раждане, изградени с помощта на събитийния анализ и един общ мулти-левъл модел, в който е тествано наличието на селективност сред жените по отношение на индивидуалните им фертилни преходи. В четвърта глава са разгледани по-подробно субективните предпоставки на новия фертилен преход. Изследвани са факторите, които влияят върху намеренията на жените в близка или по-далечна перспектива за раждане на първо и второ дете. В заключителната част на изследването са обобщени резултатите от проведените анализи на ценностните и поведенческите аспект на променящия се фертилен профил на страната след 1990 година. Правят се разграничения в начина на протичане на Втория демографски преход в условията на пост-социалистическите общества и тези на обществата на благоденствието.

Главният акцент в монографията е поставен върху взаимовръзката между демографските промени в България след 1990 г. и трансформациите в системата на социална защита с акцент върху политиките, насочени към семейството и раждаемостта. Идеята е да се проследи как се преплитат социално-политическите елементи на моделите на държавата на благоденствието (на основата на типологията на Г. Еспинг-Андерсен за моделите държава на благоденствие) в общия европейския социален модел, който страната се опитва да следва в периода след края на социализма, и как амбивалентното съчетаване на тези елементи поражда доминиращите визии за справянето с демографската криза в страната. (Настоящата монография е публикувана с финансовата помощ на Европейския социален фонд по Проект ,,Развитие на млади изследователи в областта на демографията" BG051PO001-3.3.06-0001).

The book explores the migratory movements of Roma and partly of non-Roma from the CEE countries, attitudes to migration, profi les of migrants and the main factors that lead to choosing this type of behavior. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods has been used in this research. Data from two surveys (prepared and conducted in close cooperation) have been used for the quantitative research. One is the UNDP/WB/EC Regional Roma Survey 2011 was conducted in 12 countries in Central and Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Albania, Montenegro, FYR Macedonia, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Serbia) among Roma and non-Roma living close to Roma communities. The second data set was the FRA Roma pilot survey 2011 that was conducted in parallel in EU Member States (such as Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal and France). Data from this survey are employed to analyze Roma migrants' profi les in France and Italy. The qualitative research is based on the results of fi eld work conducted in Brussels and Ghent in the periods 8–19 July 2012 and 18–28 November 2012, through semi-structured interviews with emigrants, with experts from the Municipality, the Employment Agency and non-governmental organizations in Brussels and Ghent. In addition, the method of direct observation was used (of Bulgarian Roma emigrants' meeting places and homes, of the Bulgarian "Church of God" in Ghent, and of the workplaces of six emigrants). The study also used the results of a desk research of available documents and sources, relevant to the topic and the specifi c population groups.
