Conference in Georgia to focus on links between migration and skills
Mobility partnerships enable the EU, its Member States, and non-EU countries cooperate more effectively on the issues of migration.
A conference organised by the ETF in Tbilisi on 4 and 5 November, will provide an opportunity to learn from the experience of Armenia, Georgia and Moldova in implementing EU mobility partnerships, especially in the area of skills and migration.
The event will be held under the auspices of the Lithuanian Presidency of the EU Council and in cooperation with the Targeted Initiative Georgia. The participants will look at the skills dimension of the mobility partnerships as part of the EU framework of the Global Approach to Migration and Mobility.
The recent ETF surveys of migration and skills in Armenia, Georgia and Morocco provided evidence on the skill profiles of migrants and how skills are underutilised abroad and upon return. It also indicated the need for specific policy measures to support migrants for more efficient job and skills-matching process.
