Jorrit Rijpma speaks in Georgia on mobility and security
On 11 and 12 October Jorrit Rijpma spoke on Mobility and Security at the Batumi State University and the Tbilisi State University.
The lectures were organized within the EU-funded “Sustaining Migration Management in Georgia” (ENIGMMA-2) implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development. The project is based on previous projects funded under the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI), including the first ENIGMMA project which supported the Government of Georgia in the implementation of migration-related areas of the Visa dialogue between the European Union and Georgia. In Tblisi Rijpma participated in a colloquium on the migration-security nexus with the participation of local professors, as well as ICMPD experts. He explained how migration has often come to be seen as a security threat and how EU law addresses these concerns.
