EU grant for Georgian media to start 'propaganda offensive' popularising influx of migrants

Summary of Disinformation

The EU-funded “Sustaining Migration Management in Georgia” (ENIGMMA 2) project, financed with a 4.5-million-euro grant, will train the Georgia media in how to mount a “propaganda offensive,” which will persuade Georgians of the need to receive foreign migrants and pave the way for mass migration to Georgia.


Migration – either as a cause of failed integration of migrants or as a threat to states’ national identity or sovereignty – is a common issue exploited by the Kremlin.

ENIGMMA 2, launched in 2017, is a three-year project that builds on the earlier ENIGMMA project, which supported the Government of Georgia in the implementation of migration-related areas of the EU-Georgia visa dialogue in the run-up to the EU visa liberalisation for Georgia. Like ENIGMMA, ENIGMMA 2 focuses on bilateral EU-Georgia migration issues and aims to contribute to the sustainable enhancement of mobility and people-to-people contacts between the EU and Georgia. The media component of the ENIGMMA 2 project is small and, like the rest of the project, has nothing to do with migration to Georgia from any third countries.
