Facilitating effective visa liberalisation in Georgia, Moldova and Armenia

The project aims to address 20 Deliverables for 2020 under a number of WG4 thematic priorities: visa liberalization dialogue, mobility, regular and irregular migration.

Georgian Institute of Politics (GIP) conducted this Re-granting project on visa liberalisation from March to October 2019 together with the Armenian Analytical Center on Globalization and Regional Cooperation (ACGRC) and the Moldovan Institute for European Policies and Reforms (IPRE). Tatia Dolidze (GIP), Stepan Grigoryan for ACGRC, and Iulian Rusu for IPRE each managed to compile comprehensive policy papers about the visa liberalisation dialogues in their countries. Together they accomplished a compelling overview about the state of play of visa liberalisations in Georgia, Armenia and Moldova. The analysts find that experience sharing amongst the three EaP countries helps the process of visa liberalisation.
