The study assesses the state of the arts of migration management in Armenia through the prism of migrants’ human rights.
By representing the various aspects of international migration law and migrants’ rights that should be taken into consideration by the State and the society to manage migration, the study plays an important role in drawing the attention of the Government and the public to the gaps in migration management to be addressed in Armenia and the need to view the migrants as a separate group in terms of protection of their rights. Part One explores the interrelationships among migration, development and human rights in general and notes the instruments available for protecting international migrant rights. Part Two describes the current state of migrants’ rights in Armenia and examines how well migrants’ rights are reflected in Armenia’s migration policy. The study includes statistics received from various sources.
