Approximation of the Georgian legislation with the EU migration acquis

Taking into account the priorities set by the Georgian Migration Strategy and the EU-Georgia Association Agenda, an expert group will be formed to review the relevant legislation in migration-related fields. The group will consist of representatives from the State Commission on Migration Issues (SCMI) and the EU Law Department under the Ministry of Justice of Georgia, as well as EU Member State and Georgian experts, and project staff and academic institutions from both sides. After completion of the work performed by the expert group, relevant recommendations for further approximation with the EU migration acquis will be developed and presented to the SCMI for discussion, along with recommendations for corresponding institutional and capacity building activities.
