The University of Central Asia’s Mountain Societies Research Institute (MSRI) and the Institute of Public Policy and Administration (IPPA) hosted the first working meeting with partners of a new project, focusing on migration governance, agricultural and rural change in ‘home’ communities in Europe, Asia and Africa. The project proposes an integrated approach to migration governance to address the two-way relationship between labour mobility and changes in agriculture and the rural sector.


Led by Dr. Asel Murzakulova (centre), Senior Research Fellow at MSRI, the meeting was attended by representatives from the OSCE Academy, “Polis-Asia” Analytical Centre, the University of Birmingham, and UCA.
UCA and other project partners will conduct a comparative analysis of Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, China, Thailand, Nepal, Ethiopia, and Morocco to analyse the economic, institutional, cultural and agro-ecological factors which shape these relationships. It will also identify the range of governance interventions which can harness migration to stimulate sustainable and gender equitable growth in agriculture and reduce the distress associated with migration. It is supported by the European Union Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020.
