IOM Continues to Strengthen Analytical Skills of Border Officials in Georgia with EU support
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) successfully organized a five-day Training for Trainers (ToT) course on Border Risk Analysis for analysts from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia (MIA). The training, held as part of the EU-funded project "Border and Migration Management Action for Georgia (BMMAG)," builds upon IOM's long-standing efforts to strengthen the border risk analysis capabilities of Georgian officials, further contributing to the effective border management practices.
The training aimed to enhancing the skills of Georgian analysts in effectively collecting, processing and interpreting the data related to border security, in accordance with the EU Common Integrated Risk Analyisis Model (CIRAM). This initiative also fosters intra-agency coordination and information sharing, serving as a crucial step in curbing irregular migration and transnational crime.
Led by an international expert from Estonia, the ToT course brought together representatives from the Information-Analytical Department, Border Police, Patrol Police Department, Migration Department and the Academy of MIA. Over the five-day program, participants engaged in real-life scenarios and practical exercises, using various data sources and specific analytical tools and techniques.
IOM plans to extend the impact of this initiative by organizing similar training sessions on the same topic for regional units. The national trainers, who have undergone comprehensive training during this ToT course, will play a key role in disseminating knowledge and expertise to a broader audience.
