Thematic Component: 4. Improvement of Cross-Border Cooperation
Country: Kyrgyzstan

Striving to support the rapidly developing diaspora management policies of the Republic of Kyrgyzstan and maximising its benefits for local development of the border regions, the EU-funded Border Management Programme in Central Asia – Phase 10 (BOMCA 10) organised a two-days Training on Diaspora Policies and Reintegration for the employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Migration, as well as the Secretariat of the Migration Council under the Speaker of the Parliament of the Kyrgyz Republic on 6-8 July 2022. The Training has in particular touched upon several aspects of the work with diaspora such as general diaspora policies and practices through the lenses of the effective communication, strong networks and engaging youth, as well as the nexus to the development and reintegration of labour migrants.

This publication is primarily designed for the participants of the conducted BOMCA 10 training as a reference list for further reading. Equally, it is a useful tool for a wider audience engaged in the area of diaspora mobilisation and reintegration of returned migrants.
