Before the EU-enlargements to include much of Eastern Europe many countries discussed "transition rules" to mitigate the negative effects of an expected mass emigration from the new Member States to the "old" EU 15 countries. In the Nordic countries, given their high levels of social protection, a fear of "social tourism" emerged, especially from countries like e.g. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Indeed, the population declines the Baltic countries have experienced are usually seen as a result of labour emigration due to EU membership.
