Cooperation with Academia

One of the main components of the ENIGMMA project is cooperation with the Georgian academia, in particular the development of a lectures cycle, which was integrated in the programme of the 2014/2015 as well as the 2015/2016 and 2016/ 2017 academic years. Preliminarily, the lectures and seminars cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to migration studies and migration research methods
  • Migration and development and migration and economics
  • International human rights protection
  • International and EU migration law and EU migration policy
  • Research and evaluation of migration-related statistical data
  • Integration and Citizenship

  • Migration and media and perception of migrants

The topics are specified according to the specific requests of the Tbilisi State University. The guest lecturers are invited by the project from partner universities from EU member states. The lectures and seminars are also open for representatives of state institutions and NGOs.

In addition, the ENIGMMA project is producing a Migration Textbook for Georgia.
