Simplifying the propiska: Realising the benefits of internal migration


Hatcher, Craig; Balybaeva, Asylgul (2013). Simplifying the propiska: Realising the benefits of internal migration. Evidence for Policy / NCCR North-South, (8):online.

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.
