“Migration in the Republic of Azerbaijan: A Country Profile 2008” is part of a series of migration profiles produced by IOM Budapest within the “Black Sea Consultative Process on Migration Management” project, funded from IOM’s 1035 Facility. It reveals that unstable socioeconomic conditions as well as various conflicts in the region have acted as emigration push factors in the postindependence period (1991 to 1996). However, the economic revival of the country has created favorable conditions for the reverse of migration flows, mainly driven by a vibrant energy sector. Thus, in 2007, according to official data, net migration was approximately 1,000 persons positive. The State Migration Management Policy Concept defines in the policy and institutional framework to deal with migration in an orderly manner.
