A new immigration policy in Azerbaijan

Authors Sergey RUMYANSEV
Description
Up to the late 1990s, discourse around mass emigration from Azerbaijan had to do, above all, with mass post-Soviet labour migration. During the last two decades (1990-2009) 266,000 arrived in the country as permanent migrants and 707,500 departed from Azerbaijan according to official statistics. According to official statistics the balance of migration was negative for Azerbaijan (though never massively negative) almost every year. But in the last two years more people arrived in the country than left it. On the grounds of these figures the authorities announced that Azerbaijan has become attractive for immigrants. President Ilham Aliyev’s stated: “The number of foreigners intending to visit the Republic of Azerbaijan will increase while Azerbaijan is developing. This can be considered a positive factor for our country. However, we must prefer the interests of our state, people, citizens and this must be the priority for our migration policy” on the home page of the Internet Site of the “State Migration Service of Azerbaijan Republic” in fact, there is the official declaration of changes in the migration process. These ideas have been set in state law in the “Decree by the president of the Azerbaijani Republic on the use of the ‘single window’ principle in the management of migration processes” (4th of March 2009).

Legal aspects of struggle against human trafficking in Azerbaijan

Authors Alovsat ALIYEV
Description
History of struggle against human trafficking of the Republic of Azerbaijan can be calculated from 1996. So, on that date Azerbaijan has signed UN Convention “For the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others”. However Azerbaijan did not take any step to bring national legislation into line with the Convention for a long time. Later it ratified number of Conventions of United Nations1 and Council of Europe2 as well. In addition to it, with a view to strengthen fight against human trafficking and to improve cooperation Azerbaijan has signed some agreements3 and bilateral memorandums4 with the member states of Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Azerbaijan has also approved number of protocols5 , statements 6 , understanding memorandum7 , and cooperation programs8

Social and economic rights of refugees and displaced persons in Azerbaijan

Authors Alovsat ALIYEV
Description
Patronage of the country is not limited to identifying the status of a refugee and displaced person and providing them with certain documents; it also deals with ensuring and protecting their social and economic rights. Azerbaijan is a post-Soviet country with a lot of refugees and displaced persons: 300 thousand naturalized refugees, 760 thousand displaced persons, around 2 thousand persons seeking political asylum and thousands of persons whose status is unclear1 This report aims to analyze current situation from the standpoint of legislation in the field refugee rights, namely right to labor and certain labor conditions, right to social protection and social security, access to public service, right to be provided with meals, clothes and residence, right to medical care, rights in the field of family relations and right to education. . From the first days of independence, the Republic of Azerbaijan has been taking steps to improve legislation and strengthen government agencies that are involved in legal relations with asylum seekers, refugees and displaced persons and are in charge of their social protection. Azerbaijan acceded to all UN Conventions relating to refugees and introduced certain changes into national legislation in accordance with these conventions. In addition to that, Azerbaijan is making efforts to solve the problems of displaced persons relying on UNHCR Guiding Principles. In addition to the law “On status of refugees and forcibly displaced (persons displaced within the country) persons”2 , which is the main law regulating rights of refugees and displaced persons, Azerbaijan also adopted some normative acts to enforce that law3 On May 21, 1999 the law “On social protection of displaced persons and persons . 4 equalized to them” was adopted. This law defines obligations of government bodies regarding accommodation of displaced persons and persons equalized to them (hereinafter referred to as displaced persons), their social protection etc.

Refugees, displaced persons and asylum seekers in Armenia

Authors Ruber YEGANYAN
Description
Armenia first came to know the painful phenomenon of the refugee and IDP population in the course of its recent history, in 1998. It was at the end of this year that people escaping from the Armenian pogroms in the Azeri city of Sumgant arrived in Armenia. Given the deepening interethnic conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno Karabakh, the refugee problem further intensified, resulting in an inflow that became massive in scope. From 1988-1991, Armenia received a total of more than 360 thousand refugees from Azerbaijan, not only of Armenian nationality but also of minority nationalities who had been living in the territory of Azerbaijan. At the same time, because of the sharp increase in interethnic distrust and tension from 1989-1991, approximately 170 thousand ethnic Azeris who had been living in Armenia were forced to flee the country.

Immigrants in Azerbaijan: Current situation and prospects of (re)integration policy

Authors Sergey RUMYANSEV
Description
Problems of immigrants in the post-Soviet Azerbaijan in the context of the issue of their integration in the host society till now has not been in the focus of researchers' attention. In the attempt to analyze this issue it makes sense to classify immigrants into three groups: 1) natives of Azerbaijan (re-emigrants) and their family members; 2) ethnic s from Georgia; 3) labor immigrants from different countries (EU, Turkey, India, Pakistan, etc.), who arrive to the country to look for a job or to open their own business. Conditional division into these three groups lets us describe major trends in this research area. Analysis suggested in this article is mostly based on a series of biographic interviews with immigrants from all three conditionally defined groups. The main research question in the author's opinion should be formulated as follows: what are the social resources and practices used by immigrants in Azerbaijan for integration in the host society, in the absence of any targeted state integration policy.

Asylum seekers, refugees, and IDPS in Azerbaijan : issues and perspectives

Authors Arif YUNUSOV
Description
As early as twenty years ago, no one in Azerbaijan knew about refugees or people in similar situations who were forced to flee their homes due to various circumstances such as conflict and deportation. However, over the past 20 years these forced migration processes have reached such a magnitude in Azerbaijan that it has become part of the current Azeri reality, a kind of trademark which literally affects all spheres of life for this young state. However, these processes, as well as the plight and status of forced migrants have had their own characteristics and particularities at various times.

Azerbaijan : readmission and interstate agreements

Authors Arif YUNUSOV
Description
Azerbaijani migrants’ return and their subsequent reintegration into society is one of the most painful and acute issues facing Azerbaijan today. The scale of the problem is sufficiently large for a country like this. It is enough to cite the following data: from 1991 to 2006 over 44,000 citizens of Azerbaijan, having left the republic, officially applied for refugee status or attempted to become political emigrants in EU member states and the United States. Of course, the number of migrants who departed for the EU, US and other countries was, in fact, much larger, as by no means all applied for this kind of status. Many preferred to find a job and some lived illegally in their new homes.

Readmission, return and reintegration : legal framework in the Republic of Azerbaijan

Authors Alovsat ALIYEV
Description
Azerbaijan did not adopt any legal acts that would specifically deal with reintegration. In various normative acts one can only find some norms related to reintegration of certain groups of people. Thus, for instance, according to the Law “On combat against human trafficking”, social rehabilitation of human trafficking victims aims to encourage their integration into society and their return to normal life. It envisages measures aimed at providing legal assistance, educational opportunities, psychological, medical and professional rehabilitation, employment and housing1 . The Law “On the status of refugees and forced migrants (persons forced to move to the country)” creates conditions in which refugees can adapt to the local environment, undergo naturalization, learn the language and learn about their rights and obligations2 . As for immigrants, Azerbaijani legislation offers them an opportunity to study the Azerbaijani language, as well as the Constitution and laws of Azerbaijan

Diaspora-building in post-soviet Azerbaijan

Authors Sergey RUMYANSEV
Description
In the early 2000s, the policy of diaspora-building noticeably intensified under the influence of then Azerbaijani President Heydar Aliyev. The new president, Ilham Aliyev (2003), inherited established institutions and developed practices of constructing an ethno-national diaspora. At the same time, under the new president, the political project for the construction of an Azerbaijani ethno-national diaspora started to be implemented with an even greater intensity. The aim of this policy is to form a united and hierarchically co-subordinated bureaucratic structure (pyramid) of diaspora organisations. At the head of this bureaucratic diaspora is the Azerbaijani president (who heads the Coordinating Council of Azerbaijanis of the World) and also (a step down) the head of the State Committee for Work with Azerbaijani Diaspora. In this way, the Azerbaijani political regime strives to control, as closely as possible, the activities of diaspora organisations. The authorities of the country of origin believe that diaspora Azerbaijanis should tell “the truth about Azerbaijan”. This “truth” refers, in part, to the success of the political regime that rules the country. But there is also the need to lead the country out of the “dark zone”, i.e. from the situation where few people internationally know that Azerbaijan exists. These (and some other) goals behind diaspora-building are subordinated to the most important of them: the diaspora’s fight for the resolution of the Karabakh conflict in favour of Azerbaijan.

Integration in Azerbaijan’s migration processes

Authors Arif YUNUSOV
Description
The paper deals with the problems of integration in migration processes taking place in Azerbaijan. The paper, after defining integration, distinguishes between the problems of migrant integration in Azerbaijan and the integration of Azerbaijani migrants in other countries. In the former case we speak of refugees’ and forced migrants’ adaptation, as well as the adaptation of Azerbaijan citizens returning home from other countries. But Azerbaijan has also recently experienced an inflow of thousands of labour migrants, principally from Asian countries. The paper considers the difference in the approaches taken by the Republic’s authorities to various migrant categories. The problems of Azerbaijani emigrants, differing considerably in respect of a recipient country, are considered as well. Azerbaijani migrants, have lived and worked, sometimes for years, in Russia and CIS countries. Yet they have never lost ties with their homeland and they have been attentively following its socio-political developments with an apparent desire to return at the first signs of positive changes there. This meant an unwillingness to take on, say, Russian socio-cultural patterns or, for that matter, those of any other post-Soviet community, including local languages and local behavioral norms. Much was here conditioned by the Soviet past. The situation of Azerbaijani migrants in European countries is different: there is a language barrier, a visa regime and strict immigration rules, whereas the labour market is well provided with migrants from numerous countries. There Azerbaijani migrants were faced with a dilemma: if they chose to leave for these countries this meant leaving their country for good together with their families and they had to think of integration into local communities. For Azerbaijanis not adapted to live in a diaspora and in isolation from their homeland this posed a serious problem. Therefore, a decision to migrate to European countries was taken only by those who were self-confident, had the necessary skills and knowledge, including the relevant language skills, and by those who were forced to take such a step.

The problem of human trafficking in Azerbaijan

Authors Arif YUNUSOV
Description
The problem of human trafficking plays a significant role in migration flows from Azerbaijan. It was first addressed at the beginning of the early 1990s. The mass unemployment that followed the collapse of the USSR and the Karabakh conflict with Armenia led to the emergence of informal “slave markets” in the centre of the capital city, Baku, in the mid-1990s (in Azeri “gyl bazari”). These were gathering places for unemployed men, mostly refugees and internally displaced persons, who were prepared to take up any jobs, including jobs that involved forms of enslavement. At that time, a number of publications appeared in the national media documenting the trafficking of men, as well as women and children, from Azerbaijan, for the purposes of forced labour and enslavement (Yunusov, 194). However, such occurrences were perceived as an inevitable consequence of the unresolved Karabakh conflict and of “temporary” economic and social turmoil. Most importantly, these were of episodic character and so, did not attract much attention.

Migration for the purposes of education in the context of modernization ideas in Azerbaijan

Authors Sergey RUMYANSEV
Description
What has changed in the post-Soviet period in the field of educational migration from Azerbaijan? The socio-political and cultural contexts are certainly quite different from those that existed, for example, during the Soviet years. In the meanwhile, the current situation is a direct continuation of the tradition of sending students abroad for "modern" knowledge. As in the previous years, a significant (if not the largest) share of intellectuals who were educated in the "West" prefer to emigrate rather than to return to the country of origin. In this regard, any hopes for a successful transfer of democratic values into Azerbaijan seem difficult to implement. The most obvious innovation of the post-Soviet period is the active involvement of young people receiving their education/educated abroad, into the policy of Diaspora-building. The latter is part and parcel of the policy of the Azeri political regime to lobby its interests in the EU, the U.S. and the countries of the former Soviet Union.

The demographic and economic framework of circular migration in Azerbaijan

Authors Arif YUNUSOV
Description
The brief review shows that the overwhelming majority of Azerbaijani migrants works and stays regularly in other countries; they have poor communication with state agencies, which causes lots of problems for migrants and receiving countries. The same can be said about migrants staying in Azerbaijan. But the main thing is the lack of understanding over circular migration. This understanding can help reduce circular migration and puts irregular emigration and immigration into a legal framework.

The collection of statistical data on migration in Azerbaijan

Authors Arif YUNUSOV
Description
In the post-Soviet period in Azerbaijan?especially in the 90?s due to war with Armenia, and the political chaos and economic collapse after the breakup of the USSR? serious problems surrounding the statistical records of migration processes arose on the part of the State Statistical Committee (Goskomstat), the main department in this sphere in the republic. Subsequently, the situation involving records of population movement began to improve. However, problems remained. And they were largely connected to the fact that during this period in Azerbaijan, there were many other government departments besides Goskomstat working on issues related to population migration statistics: the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population, the State Committee on Refugee Affairs and Internally Displaced Persons, the State Committee on the Affairs of Azerbaijanis Living Abroad, the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), the Ministry of National Security (MNS), the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education. Each of the above ministries and committees had a special department that poorly coordinated with the others on this issue. Only in recent years has the situation started to change a little for the better, especially after the creation of the State Migration Service (SMS) in 2007, which has a mandated function to merge state control over migration processes, including statistical records. But this process is in its early stages and for now more than 80% of the statistical data on population migration is still administered by Goskomstat.

Refugees and forced migrants in Azerbaijan : the political context

Authors Sergey RUMYANSEV
Description
In the context of a conflict discourse, the factor of the existence of refugees and IDPs in the country becomes an important political resource. The authorities and the opposition actively use this factor in political fights and to strengthen their own positions. As a certain homogenous group, refugees and IDPS do not exist outside of the political discourse. Over the past 20 years, the refugee population has become strongly differentiated. A full resolution of issues related to this category of persons, and their de-politicization, is possible only in a situation of a lesser relevance of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The problem of human trafficking in post-soviet Azerbaijan : socio-political context

The protection of human rights, particularly in the context of international relations, and domestic policy formation in the field of gender equality are the two most important social and political contexts, within which the questions and discussions regarding the issue of human trafficking in Azerbaijan are addressed. It should be emphasized that, as a significant problem requiring a serious response on the part of state institutions, the problem of human trafficking has been on the agenda since the early 2000s. This is due to the increasingly active participation of both government officials and NGO representatives in various international programs and agreements, as well as the assumption of a number of obligations at international level, etc.

National minorities and migration in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine

Authors Iryna ULASIUK
Description
The dissolution of the Soviet Union resulted in massive depopulation in the former Soviet republics and unprecedented migration flows, including persons belonging to national minorities. Citizens of a once indivisible country were suddenly divided into “those of our kind” and “outsiders” – natives and national minorities/ immigrants. The latter were often not guaranteed citizenship and they were frequently denied basic rights. A significant percentage of national minorities have thus become forced migrants and refugees, leaving neighbouring states under threat of violence or because of discrimination. The primary interest of this paper rests upon the interconnection of minority and migration issues. It brings together two topics which have usually been discussed apart. The paper aims to investigate the interrelation of the minority regimes adopted by Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine, and migration. It seeks to open up the discussion on the extent to which certain policies and rights for national minorities can be meaningfully extended to new migrant minority groups. It also asks what lessons are to be learnt from the treatment of national minorities as far as future migration legislation is concerned.
