The project aims to create a roadmap for enhanced coordination between state and central governments, encouraging the exchange of best practices among states and increased collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs on matters related to the international migration cycle.

With India being a significant player in global migration, hosting over 32 million Indians abroad, PRAYAS seeks to facilitate safe and orderly migration for aspiring Indian workers and students.

Through policy recommendations in collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs and state governments, the project aims to strengthen international migration governance.

Head of IOM India, Sanjay Awasthi, reveals that PRAYAS will focus on conducting a comprehensive study to capture key migration trends, the needs of migrants, aspirations, and major international migration initiatives by both the central and state governments. The analysis will be shared with the Ministry to inform and guide future policies and practices.
