The collective monograph comprises the results of a 2008-2010 empirical project conducted in Armenia and Georgia and in Moscow as the favourite destination of migrants from the South Caucasus. The monograph is the first contribution to comparative research in the mi-gration intense post-Soviet space, and covers the complete cycle before, during and after mi-gration. The survey focused on such relevant issues as national migration profiles including age and gender composition, “brain drain“ and “brain waste”, return potentials, remittances, child separation, migration perception and personal experiences in Moscow and other destina-tions. As major results the field studies confirmed the international trend of feminization in migration and a high awareness of the ambivalent nature of migration among two cohorts of migrants from Armenia and Georgia in Moscow and six cohorts of returnees in the respective countries of origin.
