Georgia presents new generation of Migration Profile


Among the most popular and widely applied reports, which aims at contributing to evidence-based migration policy development, analysis, and management in the countries being the part of migratory processes, is considered to be the Migration Profile. The latter was initially proposed by the European Commission in the Communication on Migration and Development in 2005, and conceived as a concise statistical report, prepared according to a common framework, which could make it easier to understand "at a glance" the migration situation in a particular country. There were two, or to be more precise – two most popular type of MP’s: extended and light. In 2015, Georgia, which from 2008 was mainly concentrated on extended version, had introduced a brand new and so called Medium Migration Profile (MMP).

Despite the success these two profiles had among the readership, the Secretariat of the State Migration Commission on Migration Issues decided to go further and in addition to existing versions introduce the third modification designed in the form of data visualization.
