The European Training¬†Foundation conducted a survey among citizens of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Morocco of to study their expectations of life abroad and factors influencing their decision to migrate and chosen destinations, knowledge about the host country and what skills they hope to gain. Armenia and Georgia are relatively new ‘sending countries’, but the impact of migration on the population is significant, since one out of four persons in these two countries is an emigrant.

One of the aims of the project is to analyse skills of potential and returning migrants in each of the surveyed countries. The field survey which will be conducted in the second half of 2011, will focus in particular on education and skills, and the employment status of potential and returning migrants before, during and after migration.
