Die Auswirkungen der globalen Wirtschaftskrise auf die (Re-)Migration in Zentralasien und Implikationen für die Regimestabilität in drei zentralasiatischen Staaten

Principal investigator Peter Croll (Principal Investigator)
Since independence of the Central Asian states in the aftermath of the end of the of the USSR, their economic situation has markedly deteriorated. As a result, labor migration from Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to Russia and Kazakhstan has significantly increased during the past two decades. This trend continues notwithstanding the cuts caused by the global economic crisis. Financed by the Gerda-Henkel-Foundation, BICC is conducting a pilot study which investigates mid- and long-term effects of labor migration on the development and stability of Tajik society.

Migration and Remittances in Central Asia: The Case of Kazakhstan and Tajikistan

Principal investigator Jürgen Jerger (Principal Investigator), Gulzhan Alimbekova (Principal Investigator), Muzaffar A. Olimov (Principal Investigator)
The project aims to explore recent migration determinants and patterns in the Central Asian states Kazakhstan and Tajikistan on the individual and household level, and seeks to investigate the scope, transmission and use of remittances. It is planed to undertake a quantitative household survey and a qualitative interview study with respondents, who had actually migrated (ethno-survey). The analysis of these survey data is expected to produce and enhance knowledge in the field of migration and remittances in both countries and allow formulating policy relevant recommendations. Furthermore, the project is designed to strengthen research contacts between German and Central Asian researchers and to foster capacity building among scholars in Central Asia.

Regional migration report : Russia and Central Asia

Authors Anna DI BARTOLOMEO, Shushanik MAKARYAN, Agnieszka WEINAR, ...
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian Federation has become one of the most important destinations for immigration in the world. It is also a very particular case of a destination country in which two types of flows have shaped the character of immigration. Massive waves of Russians returning to their ancestral (or actual) motherland from other republics dominated throughout the 1990s, diminishing in 2000s. At the same time, the growing Russian economy started to attract immigrant workers from other parts of the post-Soviet space, especially from less developed central Asian countries, namely Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Nowadays, they are the main working migrant group, whose presence is contested on cultural grounds. The Eurasian migration system is thus a central theme for migration research in the region. This report proposes a deep comparative analysis of the place of Russia and Kazakhstan (Russia’s emerging economic rival) in the Eurasian migration system. The analysis is accompanied by an analysis of data collection in Russia and the development of Russia’s migration policy.

The legislative system of the Russian Federation in the area of asylum and refugee status

Authors Margarita PETROSYAN
The Russian law 'On Refugees' in terms of its principles and key provisions complies with the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. Still, this general compliance has turned out to be insufficient for the institution of asylum to operate effectively in the Russian Federation. The unsettled nature of the procedure of determining refugee status and the lack of procedural guarantees for asylum-seekers creates the possibility for denials of granting asylum, on the grounds of political rationale. In the first place, this refers to refugees from the countries ? former USSR republics (Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan) as well as DPRK (North Korea) and PRC (China). Even in cases when the instance of persecution cannot be doubted, they are not granted refugee status but temporary asylum, although this institution by definition serves a different purpose, and granted protection is of considerable volume. Decisions about the denial to grant refugee status in many cases do not contain the motives of the denial or are limited to the reference to the fact that an asylum-seeker has left the place of residence for economic reasons. In the majority of cases the asylum-seeker is not provided with the negative decision as such, which makes it much more difficult to appeal against it. As regards the rights, especially social rights, of an individual granted refugee status, the lack of the mechanism of their realisation in legislation creates serious obstacles for refugee integration.
