TSPC AUCA has developed a unique methodology to monitor any law

June 1, 2017

Tian-Shan Policy Center AUCA researchers Tatyana Zlobina, Asyl Balybaeva and Natalya Dolinskaya have elaborated a methodology to monitor implementation of KR laws on a commission by International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Methodology is so much unified that it can be used to only by noncommercial organization within the country, but by state bodies aiming to monitor implementation of any laws.

Moreover, IOM in Kyrgyzstan suggested other countries of Central Asia to use this methodology to evaluate legislation for suppression of human trafficking in these counties.

Specified methodology has already been used in practice – in 2016 Tian – Shan Policy Center conducted a monitoring on effectiveness of KR law implementation on “prevention and suppression of human trafficking” on a commission by International Organization for Migration (IOM). At the end of last year monitoring results were presented to the public as a summary report.

A number of recommendations by researchers along with the monitoring results were sent to Government and the Zhogorku Kenesh.


Nowadays huge work is being done on human trafficking in Central Asia; lots of positive things are taking place in this area. However, there are no instruments to evaluate this work. So we try to introduce this mechanism. It is essential to evaluate the work in order to figure out what else should be done; to identify and fill the gaps and design plans.

We suggested other countries of Central Asia to use a methodology developed by TSPC for Kyrgyzstan. During the international conference in April where the methodology was first presented, each country agreed that there should be a place for tools and mechanisms to evaluate their work. So we hope that our neighboring countries will adopt our methodology. They will probably use it as a basis with some modifications taking into account country specificities.

As for Kyrgyzstan, IOM is planning to use this methodology in the next 3-4 years. Hopefully, it will be institutionalized and form the basis for state evaluation and monitoring mechanism” – said Bermet Moldobaeva, IOM program coordinator for suppression of human trafficking in Central Asia, Head of the IOM Office in Kyrgyz Republic.


By the way (In addition)

Methodology was presented to international experts of anti-trafficking in April this year in AUCA.  Conference brought together experts from all across Central Asia, Balkan countries, Southeast Asia and Austria; Caucasian experience was also looked upon. They shared experiences and discussed how it can be used in Central Asian region.

Having split up into five working groups (by number of countries in CA region) participants tried to apply specified methodology for monitoring and evaluation onto their countries.
