On 3 April, a roundtable discussion gathered representatives of the Inspectorate General for Migration (IGM) and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Moldova together with SCOP project team and experts working on the analysis of the status quo at IGM and in the area of migration management.
The aim of the roundtable discussion was to present and discuss the findings of the assessments on: Human Resources and Business Processes Optimisation, Personal Data Protection in Migration Area and use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for improved management of migration work processes at IGM. The participants had opportunity to take part in the breakout sessions according to their areas of expertise, discuss the recommendations of the assessments and brainstorm on the next steps. Deliberations from each session touched upon the importance of adopting respective legislation in the alignment with the EU aquis, considering GDPR and implementation in practice. The need to further support digitalisation processes at IGM and advance ICT infrastructure was highlighted as a top priority.
A roundtable discussion resonates with the main objective of the SCOP project to support stakeholders in Moldova to continuously implement the reforms for provision of better migration services, alignment with European standards and digitalisation of work processes. Hence, the comprehensive approach to analyse the workflow at IGM in order to optimise the business processes and human resources, assess digitalisation needs and provide further technical support and analysis of personal data protection in migration area status-quo was developed.
The project is funded by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge, BAMF).
