The International Organization for Migration (IOM) Mission to the Republic of Moldova presents the third edition of the Extended Migration Profile (EMP) of the Republic of Moldova for 2008–2013. This report is edited and published under the project “Supporting the implementation of the migration and development component of the EU–Republic of Moldova Mobility Partnership and harnessing its benefits for the residents of the Transnistria Region of the Republic of Moldova” implemented by IOM and funded by the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova.
The analytical report represents a continuation of a complex exercise initiated in 2010: the Extended Migration Profile (EMP) of the Republic of Moldova. The first edition of the EMP analytical report covered a detailed analysis of migration data for 2005–2010, whereas its second edition covered the period from 2007 to 2012.
This third edition of the analytical report covers the years 2008–2013, and was developed by the Bureau for Migration and Asylum (BMA) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Moldova. As designated by Government Decree No. 634 (as of 24 August 2012) on approving the EMP template and list of indicators, the BMA is the institution responsible for producing the EMP in close collaboration with IOM Mission to the Republic of Moldova.
This EMP analytical report covers four basic blocks of information and analysis, namely: migration trends (part A); impact of migration (part B); migration management framework (part C); and key findings, policies’ implications and recommendations (part D).
The current edition of the EMP is a country-owned tool developed in consultation with a wide number of government and non-governmental stakeholders to be used for enhancing policy coherence, evidence-based policymaking and mainstreaming migration into national development planning.
