The findings of the report served as reference for the strategy on state regulation of migration management in Armenia and multi-annual national plan of action for migration and asylum, formulated by the Government of the Republic of 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.”
