Migrant Support Measures From An Employment And Skills Perspective (MISMES): Armenia
This report is the European Training Foundation (ETF)’s latest contribution to an informed policy dialogue on migration in the context of employment and skills. It is part of a series of reports that present the main findings of the project on migrant support measures from an employment and skills perspective (MISMES). The project was coordinated by the Migration Policy Centre of the European University Institute (EUI) under the supervision of the ETF.
The result of this project is a worldwide inventory of migrant support measures implemented in sending countries, to facilitate labour mobility and increase the developmental effect of migration. In addition, five in-depth studies were conducted in the countries, which concluded mobility partnerships with the European Union (EU): Armenia, Georgia, Republic of Moldova, Morocco, and Tunisia. For the purpose of these reports, MISMES are defined as specific policy interventions – pre, during and post migration – aimed at improving the labour market integration of migrant workers or the matching of their skills. This report is about mapping and reviewing migrant support measures in Armenia.
Dr Sona Kalantaryan, from the Migration Policy Centre of the EUI, prepared the report under the coordination of Shushanik Makaryan, also from the EUI. Valuable contributions were provided by Iván Martín as the project coordinator, as well as by Philippe Fargues and Alessandra Venturini from the EUI team. From the ETF team, significant inputs and feedback were provided by Milena Corradini, Ummuhan Bardak and Anna Kahlson.
