With the support of the EU, IOM and UNHCR will engage with the Government of Georgia in solidifying its capacities to strengthen the security of its borders through a vast range of technical assistance provision based on identified needs and gaps, while at the same time strengthening rights protection mechanisms. In parallel, IOM and UNHCR will enhance capacities of state bodies responsible for migration management to develop policies based on solid data analysis, while at the same time further developing potentials to manage (inter alia) labour migration, return migration in the context of Georgia's socio-economic development and the country's asylum system. Good governance, gender equality and respect for human rights will be overarching principles of all project interventions.
