Husly og beskæftigelse til syrisk-armenske flygtninge

Project Background: 

Baggrund

The devastating conflict in Syria has had a number of consequences, among which has been the creation of a massive influx of refugees in the region, including to Armenia. Initially, Syrian families who came to Armenia perceived the situation as temporary and expected to return back to their homes. However, the continuation of the conflict has created need for crucial decisions and public policy options for the Armenian government in order to address the physical, social and legal problems of vulnerable families. Although the Government of Armenia and a number of International Organizations and Non-Governmental Organizations are implementing assistance programs, the situation of those seeking help remains critical. The violence experienced in Syria, in addition to the difficulty of displaced living conditions, has caused psycho-social distress to many refugees.

According to the Armenian Government, since the start of the conflict, 18,000 Syrian citizens, primarily of ethnic Armenian background, have arrived in Armenia. As of July 2015, about 13,000 displaced persons remained and found protection in Armenia. The government is offering several protection options including simplified naturalization (more than 10,000 persons have acquired Armenian citizenship), accelerated asylum-procedures and facilitated short, mid and long-term residence permits.
 
Mission East in Armenia, jointly with its partners: Armenian Redwood Project, Oxfam and UNHCR, contributes to the efforts of the Government to address the urgent humanitarian needs of the displaced population.

Begrænsning af de sociale konsekvenser af indvandring af arbejdskraft og en maksimering af indvandreres inddragelse i lokal udvikling

Project Code: 
ARM-UNICEF-001

Project Status: 
Aktivt
Project Background: 

Baggrund:

The social consequences of labour (seasonal) migration on families left behind and the migrants do not receive sufficient attention, if indeed they are addressed at all. Despite the influx of money, labour migration leads to several vulnerability factors affecting family members, such as psychosocial problems, exposure to sexually transmitted diseases, lack of adequate care, reduced access to health and education services, and exposure of children to violence and abuse.

Mission East’s efforts represent an integrated and holistic approach towards strengthening the resilience of the families and addressing the negative social effects of labour migration in Armenia through a set of interrelated actions, such as case management, local social planning, institutional cooperation, parental care and diaspora engagement, all underpinned by policy reform. The actions build on and are in line with the on-going reform towards a better integration of social services (ISS). As such, they aim at fostering the links between migration and local development, focusing on the specific social consequences for migrants’ families and measures aimed at enhancing the contribution of diaspora to the development of their country of origin. The project is implemented in four target regions, specifically Lori, Shirak, Tavush and Gegharkunik.

Project Aims: 

Mål:

The main goal of the project is to reinforce networks with migrants and diaspora organisations and to engage them in local development to the benefit of the most vulnerable migrants’ families and children.

The specific Outcomes are:

  1. 4 Regional knowledge hubs are fully operational with staff members equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to reinforce networks with migrants and diaspora organisations and to engage them in local development to the benefit of the most vulnerable migrants’ families and children;
  2. A systematic approach is developed and implemented for the contribution of the representatives of diaspora, migrant networks and various specialized organizations to the development of the four target regions by transferring soft and hard resources to the community for the well-being of most vulnerable families and children.
