“Unpacking Migration in the Caucasus and Beyond” regional online conference
Caucasus Research Resource Center-Armenia Foundation (CRRC-Armenia) is pleased to invite you to the “Unpacking Migration in the Caucasus and Beyond” regional online 2-day conference on September 27-28, 2022. The conference is convened in partnership with CRRC-Georgia in the frames of the “Unpacking migration in the Caucasus: Evaluating what we know for action” project funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
The goal of the conference is to bring together regional and international migration scholarship, expertise and practice to address issues related to data collection and evidence-driven policy making on migration. With the main geographical focus being the South Caucasus, the conference aims to ensure knowledge exchange between the regional and the wider Eastern Partnership and global domains. The conference is to serve as a call for informed action advocating for a more efficient synchronization of migration research and data-driven decision making.
The conference will consist of panel discussions with participation of migration-related regional officials and experts, as well as presentation of research and policy papers on the general theme of studying migration.
The conference will take place entirely online, through Zoom platform, and will be broadcasted on Facebook and Youtube. The working language is English. The preliminary agenda can be found here.
