Pilot Project 3

The full title of the project is "Making Migration and Mobility Positive Forces for Development". The project aimed at developing a Comprehensive study on policies and legislation in countries of origin and destination to successfully manage circular migration and promote its impact on development. The purpose of the proposed Pilot Project was to collect and share the findings of successful pilot programmes on circular migration; analyse their approach, principles and concrete measures; assess them with a view to their impact on development in countries of origin; and translate these results into general guiding principles for the development of functioning state policies on circular migration.

Due to the proximity of the topics, the workshops of Pilot Project 2 and Pilot Project 3 were organised jointly and also the outcome of both Pilot Projects is joint. The work thus resulted in the joint Prague Process Handbook on Managing Labour and Circular Migration.

Implementation period: August 2012 – October 2014.
