Idea pitch

Mass migration is undesirable not only for recipient countries of migrants. It is no less problematic for donor countries. Because of the constant emigration of the population, our country is devastated. The main goal of this project is to implement a pilot version of the anti-emigration and repatriation shuttle system developed by our specialists. In parallel with this, it is supposed to create a movie about this system. The target group of the project are migrants - Armenians in the EU and RF.

Where will your idea take place?

Gyumri, Shirak region, Armenia

Why does Europe need your idea?

For the EU countries, undesirable migration, besides creation of some social and economic problems, becomes the destabilizing factor in a society, on a wave anti-migrants moods of nationalist parties become more attractive, thereby introduce undesirable corrective amendments in the electorate.

What is your impact?

After approbation of the shuttle system, migration management specialists and decision-makers, both in donor and recipient countries of migrants, will have an effective, alternative tool (model) for solving problems caused by mass unwanted migration.

How do you get there?

Based on the long-term data of migration mobility of the population of our country and ethnic Armenians in the world, our experts developed a model of anti-emigration and repatriation shuttle system that radically differs from the currently practiced systems (compulsory, Pay-to-Go, 4Rs etc.). The pilot version of the system is conceived as a non-commercial link between a small producer of goods with a high level of labor intensity in the donor country and a migrant in the recipient country.

What is your story?

We conducted a series of studies to identify the causes and trends of migration mobility of Armenian population and ethnic Armenians in the world, the results of which were published. Based on the research data, our specialists developed a model of the shuttle system. It's time for practical action.

Who are you doing it for?

The target groups for the project are migrants - Armenian citizens in the EU and RF, migrants - ethnic Armenians from other countries. The target audience of the project: specialists in the management of migration processes and decision-makers.
