On 16 February, an EU-funded project aiming at strengthening migration management capabilities was launched in Armenia.
The two-year project, implemented by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) Armenia and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) Armenia will help national migration authorities meet the obligations of the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement (CEPA) and the government reform agenda. The project focuses in particular on fostering well-managed and secure cross-border mobility.
The same week, the EU Technical Assistance and Information Exchange (TAIEX) mission with experts from Estonia and Latvia visited Armenia to assist the migration service in establishing/revising the institutional framework for comprehensive migration and population management.
TAIEX is a tool of the European Commission that supports public administrations in approximation to EU legislation and enforcement by sharing EU best practices.
