Migration Processes


  • Liliya Karachurina

    (Gaidar Institute for Economic Policy)


In early July 2012, the RF President signed Russia’s State Migration Policy Concept. Two months later, the RF Government considered a draft plan of measures aimed at implementing that concept. The plan sets timelines for the new laws on migration designed to implement the Concept to be presented for consideration – 2012 and 2013. It should be noted that the plan spells out only the timelines for presenting the laws to the RF Government and the State Duma, and not the timeline for their adoption. Bearing in mind that sometimes it takes years for a bill to pass through the State Duma, and taking into account the Russian penchant for emergency changes to law enforcement (for example, in time of crisis), the actual implementation of the Concept may either be indefinitely postponed or even fail to materialize.
