Simplifying the propiska: Realising the benefits of internal migration

Abstract

Internal migration has the potential not only to improve the livelihoods of individual migrants but is also increasingly gaining recognition for its role in contributing to the wider economic growth of many countries. Despite these positive aspects, restrictive state practices hindering internal migration continue to exist, to the detriment of internal migrants. Kyrgyzstan’s population registration system demonstrates this. While the registration system has the potential to fulfil an effective budgetary and planning role for the government, in its current form it fails to do so and simultaneously restricts the rights of internal migrants.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
