The International Centre for Migration and Policy Development

JAN 1, 2019 – SEPT 30, 2020


The action is designed around 3 main topics: temporary legal labour migration, digital economy development, and migration and development nexus – that are closely interlinked within its concept.

More specifically, temporary legal labour migration of selected young ICT specialists from Nigeria to Lithuania aimed at enhancing their skills and addressing labour shortage gaps as well as contributing to the growth and development of digital economy in both the host country and the country of origin (upon return) is the key ground of the action.

Selected young Nigerian ICT specialists will come to Lithuania for a paid traineeship program and will be employed in ICT companies in Lithuania for a period from 6 to 12 months. In order to stimulate a positive migration-development nexus (after the end of the traineeship program) re-integration support will be provided to the trainees to facilitate adjustment and productive use of their human and social capital acquired in Lithuania upon their return to Nigeria.
