ENIGMMA Call for EU Member States Experts

The project 'Enhancing Georgia's Migration Management' (ENIGMMA) is one of the outcomes of Georgia's continued progress in the implementation of the EU-Georgia Partnership and Cooperation Agreement, the EU-Georgia European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) Action Plan, the Mobility Partnership and the Visa Facilitation and Readmission Agreements. The project is funded by the EU under the Eastern Partnership Integration and Cooperation Programme. The project started in December 2013 and will run until June 2017. The main objective of the project, which will be jointly managed by the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia (EUD) and the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), in close cooperation with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), is to strengthen the migration governance framework in Georgia in line with the Visa Liberalisation Action Plan (VLAP).

Taking into account the priorities set down by the Georgian government in its Migration Strategy, the areas covered by the VLAP and the objectives, expected results and activities specified in the ENIGMMA project, ICMPD with the strong involvement of experts from EU MS supports Georgia in capacity building and institutional reform in the following migration management areas:

  • strengthening of the analytical capacities and knowledge base on migration in Georgia, in particular, in areas covered by the VLAP, including cooperation with the academia and development of the Migration Handbook for Georgia
  • support in the development of an evidence-based migration policy framework, including a comprehensive analysis of migration impact on socio-economic development in Georgia
