Current research projects on irregular migration
ELIAMEP implements the three year research project on Governing Irregular Migration: States, Actors and Intermediaries – IRMA, which is funded by the General Secretariat for Research and Technology of Greece through the ARISTEIA programme, and will last for 36 months.
ELIAMEP (Eda Gemi and Marina Nikolova) is the coordinator for Greece at the European Integration Web Site since 2010. The EWSI is coordinated by the Migration Policy Group (MPG) in Brussels and sponsored by the European Commission.
ELIAMEP (Eda Gemi and Marina Nikolova) is involved in the implementation of the project MIPEX 2015: Integration policies: Who benefits? The development and use of indicators in integration debates which aims to inform and engage key policy actors about how to use indicators to improve integration governance and policy effectiveness.
ELIAMEP Researchers Prof. Dia Anagnostou, and Ms Eda Gemi participate in the ASSESS research project “Assessing integration measures for vulnerable migrant groups” which monitors and assesses the effectiveness of integration measures that have been adopted at the level of Member States. The assessment, in particular, aims to identify the strengths and weaknesses in the application of the common EU guidelines and principles in the area of integration. It specifically focuses on the most vulnerable migrant groups, such as women, children and victims of trafficking.
Participation in international networks
Professor Anna Triandafyllidou, formerly Senior Fellow at ELIAMEP and currently member of its Scientific Board, participates in the OECD Network of International Migration Experts, drafting each year a report reviewing the size and features of the migrant population in Greece, its labour market and overall social and political integration, and the challenges of irregular migration and asylum seeking. The report discusses also the migration policy developments in Greece while most recently these reports cover also the issue of emigration from Greece as a result of the economic crisis.
