The migration of Egyptians to Europe is nothing new, as it has been steadily increasing over the past 10 years with migration seen as a solution to Egypt's growing economic problems. However, when reviewing the analyses already available on the topic, almost all the focus was on the migrants themselves. It was for this reason that the study was based entirely on those family members left behind; their experiences, struggles, opinions and most importantly, their voices needed to be given a chance to be heard when dealing with the issue of Egyptian migration. This study reviewed the reasons as to why Egyptians decide to migrate, as well as the impacts that this decision had on the family that remained behind. While the study used primary sources as the main foundation for its findings, literature was essential in providing the background information needed for this research project.
