    Movements of people, money and cultures: Migration and its effects on the post-Soviet transition processes in the South Caucasus
    University of Michigan, Social Work Building, 1636 International Institute, 1080 S. University Avenue
    November 18, 2015, 4:00 – 5:30 pm

    The presentation will explore how Soviet migrant networks perpetuate migratory processes from the former “colonies” to Russia and instigate new flows of migration. With migratory ties, social networks, migrants’ transnational activity, Russia maintains its influence on many former “colonies” and on Armenia particularly. Georgia, has more migratory ties with EU countries. The case of Georgia’s post-soviet development processes will be deployed as a counterpoint to that of Armenia.
