The theoretical basis of this article is the European project Multiple Choice Identity : Materials of Migration and Mobility. A comparative analysis of statistical data about migration in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and other countries, and a documentary analysis of authorities and media information about migration from Latvia are the basis of the paper. Empirical investigations, including observations, interviews and questionnaires were used, including interviews with people migrating from Latvia. The authors conclude that positive changes in the economic life and a positive attitude in the mass media materials are needed to help to form positive attitudes of students and youth towards their own country.
