NIEM project | Comparative report on the influx of irregular migrants across the border of Belarus


New report provides an overview of the measures taken by the Lithuanian and Latvian governments in response to the sudden influx of irregular migrants across the Belarussian border in the period of June 2021 – January 2022. The analysis of the situation reveals that the response of the Governments was in many ways similar, while the main differences were caused by a considerably different number of irregular migrants received by these countries.

The comparative regional analysis was conducted as part of the project “The National Integration Evaluation Mechanism (NIEM)”. NIEM establishes a mechanism for a biennial, comprehensive evaluation of the integration of beneficiaries of international protection to provide evidence on gaps in integration standards, identify promising practices and evaluate the effects of legislative and policy changes.
