This paper is based on a comprehensive report by the EDB Centre for Integration Studies. The complete version, titled Impact of Kyrgyzstan’s Accession to the Customs Union for the Kyrgyz Labor Market and Human Capital, which is available in Russian, contains a full description of the research methodology used and the relevant body of literature. It combines macroeconomic, microeconomic, and sociological (both quantitative and qualitative) approaches to assessing the state of labor migration, its effects on Kyrgyzstan’s human capital, and the potential impact of Kyrgyzstan’s accession to the Belarus-Kazakhstan-Russia Customs Union (CU) and Single Economic Space (SES) for Kyrgyz labor-resource flows. It also examines money transfers, the labor-market environment, institutions and migratory networks, the education system, and workforce training.
