About the Project
The project was implemented as part of the “Supporting The State Commission on Migration Issues for Sustainable and Effective Functioning” initiative and envisaged the study of migration issues over time. The study covered the following topics: the visa-free regime and its effects; illegal migration and trafficking; labor migration; asylum process; and emigration plans and experiences.
In 2017 and 2019, ACT conducted large-scale national studies with q special focus on the regions of Georgia with large populations of ethnic minorities. In close cooperation with the State Service Development Agency and with the involvement of the main stakeholders, ACT developed profile of the average migrant and identified the main gaps and challenges that should be mitigated by the relevant agencies.
The survey outcomes have been used by line ministries and international stakeholders to develop relevant policies, to refine action plans, and to inform partners.
