"The comparative analysis of the economic aspects of international migration: EU, Mediterranean, and CIS"

Objective

"The overall objective of the project is to bring together an international and interdisciplinary research teams for the purpose of forming a center for research and transfer of knowledge in the area of international migration.
Migration is an international phenomenon that transcends national boundaries. It is no longer limited to only few areas of the world, with many new migration systems having established themselves over the last 20 years. The project will take predominantly economic and socio-economic perspective. The team will commence its work from a clear standpoint: migration phenomena are similar across the world and there are many tools to investigate them that can be used successfully in various geographic areas. Promoting universal scientific approach, the project is going to trespass geographical and political fragmentation of this study area. Instead it will focus on commonalities across three migration systems:
 European Union – Mediterranean countries
 Russian Federation – Commonwealth of Independent States
 European Union – Commonwealth of Independent States
The exchange program will facilitate the following technical cooperation:
1. Exchange of expertise as regards measurement of various types of money transfers and their impact;
2. Exchange of expertise on researching criminal activities in labour market in various migration systems;
3. Exchange of experience in analyzing of the factors determining the formation of the centres of labour gravity and sharing the methodology of estimating the dynamics of human capital flows.
In order to achieve these aims, the partners will engage in five work packages that will include both research collaboration and hands-on experience. The first will be achieved through interactive exchanges and structured seminars and workshops, as well as supporting lectures; the second will be achieved by focused field visits."
