This report is the European Training Foundation’s (ETF) latest contribution to an informed policy dialogue on legal and circular migration. It aims to provide evidence-based, policy-oriented inputs to European Neighbourhood countries from an employment and skills perspective. To this end, a dual focus is offered: a global focus to review the migrant support measures implemented worldwide from an employment and skills perspective; and a country focus to take stock and inform policy decisions in that field in the framework of the European Union (EU) Mobility Partnerships with these Neighbourhood countries. The study was coordinated by the Migration Policy Centre of the European University Institute (EUI) under the supervision of the ETF. This report presents the main findings of a global analytical inventory of migrant support measures implemented in countries of origin from an employment and skills perspective (MISMES). These measures were introduced to facilitate labour mobility and increase the developmental effect of migration in sending countries. This is the first attempt to compile, classify and assess these measures in terms of cost effectiveness and the outcomes of the migration process. Readers can also find the MISMES methodological note (ETF, 2015a), and five additional country studies on the same topic – Armenia, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova1, Morocco and Tunisia – all countries which concluded Mobility Partnerships with the EU (ETF, 2015b-f). The report is structured around four phases of migration (pre-migration, during-migration, postmigration and multi-dimensional), and makes a compilation, classification and preliminary assessment of 11 MISMES models identified. An Excel file complementing the report and the country studies with a number of examples on each of the MISMES models is available on the web.
