Description: 

The needs assessment was administered to 300 potential migrants in Armenia to measure the demographic characteristics, social description of potential migrants, their migration preferences, as well as to identify the sources of information for the migrants.  The findings of the needs assessment were used to pioneer an IOM Migration resource center in Armenia.  

The review was conducted and the study was published within the framework of the EC funded regional programme “Informed Migration – An Integrated Approach to Promoting Legal Migration through National Capacity Building and Inter-regional Dialogue between the South Caucasus and the EU.”
