CRRC-Armenia will be presenting the preliminary results of a survey conducted among 2000 households within the project on “Interrelations between public policies, migration and development in Armenia” commissioned by OECD. This consultation meeting will serve as a platform to bring together experts from the OECD Development Center and all relevant stakeholders in Armenia (public officials, researchers, NGO representatives, donors and other interested) to discuss preliminary findings of the survey and open a dialogue on different points of views and interpretations.
In January 2013, the OECD launched a project on the Interrelations between public policies, migration and development, which aims at enhancing the capacity of the project’s ten partner countries in incorporating migration into the design and implementation of their development strategies through case studies. The project seeks to better understand how international migration affects non-migration related public policies, and conversely, how these policies affect migration. The project is co-funded by the EU Thematic Programme on Migration and Asylum and managed by the OECD Development Centre.
The project aims to provide empirical evidence on the interrelations between migration and public policy based on quantitative and qualitative fieldwork in the country. The methodological framework of the project was developed by the OECD Development Centre and implemented in Armenia by the Caucasus Research Resource Centers (CRRC), Armenia.
2 000 household surveys
100 community surveys
48 qualitative stakeholder interviews
The project will provide evidence at the country level as well as across countries. It will focus on the labour market, education, agriculture and investment, key sectors for sustaining economic and social development. Quantitative data for the project was collected from March 13th to April 3rd, 2015.
This consultation meeting will serve as a platform to bring together all relevant stakeholders in Armenia to discuss preliminary findings and open a dialogue on different points of views and interpretations. The meeting will contribute to enriching the analysis at the country level, and will offer an opportunity to discuss the preliminary results.
