2010-2013

In 2010-2013 the International Center for Human Development (ICHD) and International Organization for Migration (IOM) implemented the project “Strengthening Evidence-Based Management of Migration in Armenia” with the support of the EU. The overall goal of the project was to enhance management of labour migration flows from Armenia to EU countries through four cross-cutting specific objectives: (A) enhancing capacities of private employment agencies (PEAs) to match labour demand and offer; (B) enabling a conducive environment for circular migration of Armenian workers; (C) strengthening national capacities in migration data collection, analysis and policy and (D) raising awareness towards possible approximation of legislation on migration management with EU Acquis. To address these objectives a series of interlinked activities were implemented, including policy advice, institutional capacity building and awareness raising, which were constantly being revised and updated in line with new developments both in Armenia and the European Union.
