Tajik Migrants with Re-entry Bans to the Russian Federation - January 2014

This exploratory study, conducted in 2013, examines the challenges and future plans of the growing number of Tajik migrant workers banned from re-entering the Russian Federation. Varying in duration from three to five years, these re-entry bans have led to a growing category of involuntary returnees who lack economic prospects in Tajikistan. Previous research has shown that involuntarily returned migrant workers often face socioeconomic vulnerabilities upon return to their home countries. Drawing on in-depth personal interviews and focus group discussions, this study is able to give a detailed picture of the situation of Tajik migrant workers with re-entry bans, as well as provide recommendations to help decrease their vulnerabilities and harness their potential to develop the local economy in Tajikistan.
