The State Commission on Migration Issues was set up on 13 October 2010 on the basis of the Government's Decree No. 314. The Commission is the Government's consultative body to discuss and take decisions on various important issues related to migration management. The Commission comprising 12* government entities is chaired by the Minister of Justice and co-chaired by the Deputy Minister of the Interior.
During its lifetime, the Commission has become a key platform for discussing migration-related issues and an effective instrument for coordinating competences falling under different bodies. To this end, the Commission is being provided with analytical and administrative support by the Secretariat (set up on the recommendation and with the funding from the EU) at the Public Services Development Agency - a Legal Entity of Public Law under the Ministry of Justice. The Commission's activities have been positively assessed by the European Community and the leading international organisations working in the field.
To further activate the Commission's work in different directions, inside the Commission thematic working groups have been set up to work on Reintegration issues, Migration Risk Analysis, Migration Strategy, Reduction of Statelessness, Unified Migration Analytical System, Migration & Development and Aliens integration
In addition, in 2013, international and non-governmental organizations working in the field were granted a consultative status within the Commission to provide additional expertise and develop a format of cooperation. Thanks to their active cooperation with the Commission’s Secretariat, significant progress has been achieved in eradicating thematic overlap and ensuring targeted use of existing resources. If projects with similar or even the same activities were initiated in the past, today the themes of ongoing projects in the field of migration are agreed with all the bodies and fully conform to the country's needs.
