The Migration Working Group includes organizations and individual experts that address challenging migration issues in both Russia and the US. One of the main priorities of the Working Group is to map the institutional context of migration, specifically focusing on assessing areas of need and documenting best practices. The Working Group members also seek to encourage migrant integration in communities in both countries, as well as access to the labor market, education, and healthcare. The Working Group also works toward strengthening migrants’ access to services that provide for legal support.
The Migration Working Group’s previous project, entitled “Legal Process and Migrants: Issues of Equity and Effectiveness,” worked to improve the legal and institutional environment for migration flows in Russia and the US.
The Migration Working Group discusses their project at the October, 2014 SEE Conference in Washington, DC.
