This second edition of the analytical report, which covers the years 2007 to 2012, was developed by the Bureau for Migration and Asylum (BMA) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Moldova, designated by Government Decree No. 634 (dated 24 August 2012) as the institution responsible for producing the EMP, on the approval of the EMP template and list of indicators, in strong collaboration with IOM Moldova.  

This EMP analytical report covers four basic blocks of information and analysis, namely, Part A: Migration Trends; Part B: Migration Impact; Part C: Migration Management Framework; and Part D: Main Findings, Policy Implications and Recommendations.

This edition of the EMP, is a country-owned tool developed in consultation with a wide number of government and nongovernment stakeholders, to be used for enhancing policy coherence, evidence-based policymaking, and mainstreaming migration into national development planning.
